Manchester United star insists he is “very happy” and is helping the team

David de Gea

David De Gea has claimed that he is happy at Manchester United despite Jose Mourinho being unsure about the Spaniard extending his stay at the club.

The Daily Star reports the keeper has not come to an agreement over a new deal and could leave on a free.

Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are in the market for a keeper, as per the report, and Mourinho was not confident of De Gea staying (h/t Daily Star):

“I am not confident.

“I cannot find the word in English, but let’s see what happens.”

However, the keeper was quoted by the Daily Star as saying that everyone is focused on the team and contracts can be a distraction.

“What matters is focusing on football. We have an important game against Everton and we have some big fixtures over the coming months.

“I think that’s what matters, rather than thinking about anything else. I’ve been here for many seasons, as we’ve said.

“I’ve been at the club for eight seasons now. I’m very happy here.

“I always feel that warmth from the fans and everyone who works at the club.”

Losing De Gea would be a huge issue for the team as the Spaniard is possibly the best keeper in the world. United must do all they can to keep the player, and hopefully, we will extend his stay at Old Trafford for a long time.
