David de Gea, the number 1 keeper of Manchester United, reveals he is ‘very happy’ at Manchester United at present, and his focus now is how he could keep performing well for the club rather than his contract situation.
Spain international goalkeeper De Gea has developed into one of the best goalkeepers in the world while at United but his current deal runs out in the summer.
Talks have been ongoing for several months but Jose Mourinho admitted on Friday he is ‘not confident’ De Gea will sign an extension.
De Gea, for his part, says he wants to focus on helping the Red Devils win games rather than be distracted by talk over his future at Old Trafford.
He told Sky Sports:
‘What matters is the team and all of us being focused on what we need to focus on, which is winning games, rather than contracts or any topics that 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.’
The 27 year old keeper also added:
‘I think it’s very easy to be focused on what you have to focus on, partly because we have lots of training sessions and play every three or four days.
‘You have to be focused on what’s important, which is the team, winning, doing well in training and being in good shape to give your all.
Having lost three of their first nine league games so far this season, Manchester United are only tenth ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with Everton.
After last weekend’s 2-2 draw at Chelsea, the Red Devils suffered a 1-0 defeat to Juventus in the Champions League.
