The Old Trafford are laced in an advantage position having made it clear in the contract terms that they have the option of extending the player’s stay by another year should he refuse to commit his future again.

It has been revealed that United are aware of the interests from Barcelona and PSG for the player, hence they will ensure the former Athletico Madrid goalie is delayed for not being loyal to the club.
