De Gea, who has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid, has been the subject of a long-running transfer saga this summer.
However, Man United are adamant that the Spaniard will not leave unless a world-record bid for a goalkeeper is made or Sergio Ramos moves the other way.
Officials at the club are expecting neither to happen before the transfer window shuts, meaning he will stay.
Louis van Gaal dropped De Gea for the Premier League opener against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend as he was not deemed to be in the right frame of mind for the clash.
It is extremely satisfying to see United’s stance is unchanged in the face of fierce speculation.
When Madrid target a player, they usually get him. Hopefully United will make them realise they won’t always get their way. As for De Gea, he will need to prepare himself mentally for another year at United. Who knows, perhaps he will change his mind about leaving.
