Manchester United’s world class goalkeeper David de Gea has insisted he’s happy at the club despite rumours of Real Madrid’s reignited interested heating up.
The Spanish giants attempted to sign the 27 year old a few seasons ago in a transfer fiasco that has been widely publicised.
Thanks to a faulty fax machine, United managed to hold onto their star man and even renewed his contract to extend his stay at Old Trafford.
The rumours quietened down for a while but only for a short time and Madrid are seemingly hell bent on getting their man.
De Gea though has recently insisted that he’s happy with the Red Devils in a move that’ll surely delight supporters of their player’s loyalty.
According to Manchester Evening News, David said: “Yeah, time flies by doesn’t it? When you think I’m in my seventh season now, I’m really, really happy with all my time here.
“A lot has happened, you know, mostly all really good. One or two things not quite so good, but I’m very happy.
“I came here as a kid and I’m a man now both on and off the field. From a football point of view and in my own life as well. Looking back, it’s been seven fantastic years.”
David de Gea‘s professionalism has never been questioned during his time at Manchester United as he proved to remain committed and focussed despite all the transfer rumours.
However, there is a certain feeling that the Spaniard is bound to return to his home nation at one point or the other and supporters will be hoping it’s far later down in his career.
De Gea is arguably the club’s best current talent although new signing Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba come close towards that label.
If the Red Devils have any hope of challenging for top silverware then they’ll certainly need to hold onto the talented goalkeeper.
The good news is that David is unlikely to ever truly publicly state his intent to leave the club as he didn’t even do so when a move seemed imminent.
Should that remain the case, even if a transfer does come close to happening, United should have the upper hand in the negotiations.
