Keeping De Gea at Old Trafford will definitely be much easier now under Jose Mourinho, who has made United competitive again and has brought back the mojo which was lost under his predecessors Louis Van Gaal and David Moyes.
The two Manchester clubs now sit atop the Premier League table, with 13 points apiece.
He was quoted by ESPN saying, "I can see him staying here for more years, but we need to win titles to keep him with us".
Chelsea's trophy haul is considerably more impressive, with the Gunners financial figures set to take a further hammering next summer when big money signings Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are likely to leave on free transfers when their contracts expire.

The European Central Bank began a similar QE programme in March 2015 and is expected to continue the stimulus into 2019. Spendlove noted that the Fed has telegraphed its move for months in an effort to prepare investors for it.
City will look to continue their impressive start to the 2017-18 campaign when they host Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon. I know how lucky I am to play for Manchester United. And if that makes City more attractive it may also make them more easily disrupted, as we saw last season when they won their first 10 matches in scintillating style only to falter in October.
In Mkhitaryan, Mourinho had not only got United the best playmaker in the Bundesliga over the last three seasons but also found a player who is at the peak of his prowess. Ander Herrera has made City his verbal targets in a couple previous instances.
Alongside Michael Carrick, Herrera had formed a fine-tuned partnership in central midfield and last season had arguably his best game in a United shirt when he successfully marked Eden Hazard, and scored, in a 2-0 win over eventual champions Chelsea. Those titles United won were the Europa League, the League Cup and a Community Shield. It's the date of the first Manchester Derby this season. He was ultimately proven wrong as City finished fourth and United finished fifth.
