David de Gea: I’m not going to think of anything but the World Cup

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United star David de Gea has insisted he has no time for the Real Madrid rumours as he hopes to avoid any distractions that can hurt his World Cup campaign.

Spain head to Russia in the hopes of restoring former glories having won the World Cup and Euros in quick succession less than a decade ago.

De Gea will be instrumental in his side’s bid for international football’s biggest trophy and is expected to keep clean sheets at will.

Many recognise the former Atletico man as the world’s best goalkeeper and so there’s no surprise that Madrid are reported to be interested in signing him once more.

The La Liga giants failed in their attempts to sign him previously with a faulty fax machine reportedly the reason why United were able to hold onto him.

According to Metro, David said: “My future? The important thing is the World Cup and not to think of anything else that can divert you or upset you.

“You have to be focused on having a good World Cup – we are all good. Hopefully we can go far and win. Football is football and a thousand things can happen.

“But I’m always calm. Come what may, I’ll be the same. It is important to be focused and be 100 per cent.”

De Gea is perhaps Jose Mourinho’s best player and losing him at the moment would be too much trouble considering the overhaul the manager has planned.

The Portuguese boss is said to be interested in still signing another four more players having gotten Fred and Diogo Dalot already.

Mourinho’s focus has been his midfield and defence, meaning losing a top goalkeeper is a distraction that’s certainly not needed.
