United highly-rated goalkeeper De Gea has given a defensive answer over his Manchester United future by declaring he wants to stay. The Spaniard has been linked with a move to Spain for quite some time now.
The Spanish shot-stopper was at the center of the transfer wrangle, and almost left the Old Trafford club during the summer of 2015 for Real Madrid, only to see the transfer collapse on the last day.
As a result, the 25-year-old shot stopper miss the first four Premier League matches, before signing a new four-year deal with the Red Devils in September.
Despite being hit with a transfer ban for the next two transfer windows, Real Madrid are believed to be keen to resurrect their interest in signing De Gea.
De Gea has dismissed speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid in the January transfer window and insists he is settled with his career at the Old Trafford Club.
Speaking to Sky Sports reported ahead of Liverpool’s game, De Gea said: “I’m happy, I’m enjoying it and I believe in the team.”
“I train every day to be the best goalkeeper in the world that is my aim. I’m not sure who the best is now, but it’s what I want. Also, to win trophies for Manchester United.”
“I cannot describe how I felt in that moment,” said De Gea. “In another country, at another club, the fans would not be the same as at Manchester United. They are some of the best in the world, it was unbelievable,” he added.
