Jose Mourinho handed major boost as Manchester United star insists he’s happy

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has revealed that he’s happy at the club and isn’t aware of interest from Real Madrid.

The La Liga giants were involved in a well-documented transfer saga last summer, but ultimately failed to land the United shot-stopper before the deadline.

In turn, De Gea went on to re-establish himself as the first choice between the posts at Old Trafford, and continued to prove that he is undoubtedly one of the top goalkeepers in Europe.

It would have been no surprise if Real had returned to try their luck again this summer, but according to the man at the centre of the speculation, he has heard nothing about any interest from the Spanish capital and is focusing purely on Euro 2016.

“I know nothing about Madrid wanting to sign me,” he told Cadena Ser. “I’m calm. I have three more years in Manchester.”

“United have given me everything. Now I’m just concentrating on the Euros and to be with the national team. I’m at a big club, which gives me love every day. I’m very grateful for Manchester United and I’m very happy there.”

That news will be a welcome boost for Jose Mourinho, who continues to make his plans for his first season in charge at United.

Having swooped to sign Eric Bailly already this week, he will undoubtedly have more signings planned, and he will now be confident that a new goalkeeper won’t have to be on his to-do list.

Meanwhile, De Gea will face another battle ahead of Spain’s opening game against Czech Republic on Monday, as he will fight it out with Iker Casillas over who gets the nod from Vicente Del Bosque.

Given his form this season, the 25-year-old has arguably done more than enough to secure the No.1 jersey, although it remains to be seen whether or not the Spain coach agrees.

La Roja will see this as a vital tournament as they look to defend their European crown following their dismal showing in Brazil at the World Cup two years ago.
