David de Gea has made it clear how much he is enjoying being a Manchester United player and quashed any growing rumours of a potential exit.
Reports linking Real Madrid with a move for De Gea have been gathering pace ever since Iker Casillas’ demise for both club and country was matched by De Gea’s rise into one of the best young goalkeepers in the world.
Having been born in Madrid and now being a full member of the Spain squad, De Gea’s stock is continuing to rise but speaking to La Sexta, the goalkeeper made it abundantly obvious how happy he was right now in Manchester.
“It is difficult to say whether a bid will be made by Real, because of all the rumours that appear in the press,” De Gea said.
“In Manchester I feel wanted. If you took seriously what is written about you, you’d almost think you’re going to a thousand clubs.
“So the best you can do is pay attention to where you are. I feel very loved by Man United.”
In the space of only a few seasons, De Gea has transformed himself from a shy and weak goalkeeper into a dominant one, somebody who controls their box with real authority. He has been a bedrock behind a leaky defence and is now one of the first names on United’s team sheet.
There’s every chance De Gea could return to his homeland in the future but for the time being, the Spaniard is more than happy to call Manchester home.
