There had been talk of De Gea wanting out of Old Trafford…
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has rejected rumours which suggested he was on his way out of the club as “complete lies”, reported by MailSport.
The Spaniard has been one of Manchester United’s key men as they battle to regain a place in the Premier League top four after finishing a disappointing seventh last season.
In an interview with the in-house media company MUTV, de Gea commented on the rumours and the relationship with manager Louis van Gaal, which had previously been reported as on the brink of collapse.
He said, “Everything that has been written in the press about us not getting on is a lie.
“We both want the best for the club and the team, and the stories are complete lies.”
The Red Devils remain committed in giving their number one stopper an improved contract amidst interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid, following reports Iker Casillas is to move to the MLS.
After a brilliant season so far, in which he has saved his side on more than one occasion, the one-time Atletico Madrid player left no-one under any illusions in that he wanted to remain focused on the job at hand.
He said, “I think this is the best period of my career. I am playing the best football that I’ve ever played.
“I’m really enjoying it at the moment and I’m just trying to improve with every training session and every game that goes by, giving 100 per cent and concentrating to the maximum. That’s the way I want to continue”
