Transfer news: David De Gea speaks on leaving Manchester United

David De Gea has ruled out a move away from old Trafford this summer.

The Spaniard is currently with his Spanish national team as they continue their build up towards the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

De Gea joined the Red Devils from Spanish league side Atletico Madrid in a deal valued at €25 million the summer of 2011.

However, the 27-year-old has just one more year on his current contract with the Old Trafford side, but the Premier League side are willing to extend his stay beyond next season.

The goalkeeper has been heavily linked with a move to join Real Madrid all season long, after their effort to sign him in 2015 failed on the last day of transfer window.

He is tipped to replace Keylor Navas as the Galacticos are hoping to strengthen their squad for competition next term.

“Is the most important thing. Do well in Russia, have a good role and do things in the best possible way. “Future? I’m happy where I am, happy.
