Mourinho reveals plan to usurp city

Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola are managers experiencing contrasting fortunes in the premier league this season.  While Guardiola's City are cruising top spot, Mourinho's men have taken their foot off the pedal as they presently fall behind their rivals by 14 points albeit having played one game less.

The Portuguese has revealed how he intends to overtake Man City and Guardiola and the answer is : De Gea. Jose Mourinho has indicated that Manchester United will employ all weapons in their arsenal to extend David de Gea's contract with the club. 

The Spain goalkeeper's current contract will expire in June 2019 and the club is keen to keep him with a move back to Spain being mooted. You can recall that the former Atletico Madrid goal tender almost joined Real Madrid in 2015 and that continued to be a course for concern due to madrid's financial prowess. 

The 27-year-old, signed from Atletico Madrid for £18.9 million in June 2011, was United's players' player of the year in 2014 and 2015, hrnce Mourinho and undoubtedly other United affiliates sees him as a crucial part of the club's bid to return to the very top of the English and European game.

"We are not going to let the option disappear," Mourinho said. 

"A goalkeeper like he is, obviously at a club that wants to get better and better, we are not going to let that year option go away. "But obviously, we are going to try to give him a contract that keeps him here, for much more than the length of that option." 

Questioned whether contract negotiations with De Gea were under way, Jose Mourinho said: 

"I don't know. I just trust the board and the work they do. I don't negotiate with players, I don't discuss numbers in contracts, I just say what is obvious, and any of you could say the same, that he is to keep."
