De Gea is happy at United, despite Sir Alex Ferguson regularly chopping and changing his goalkeepers, leaving nobody 100% sure who his current number one is.
De Gea arrived at Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid last year and it is rumoured that the other big club from the Spanish capital are interested in him becoming the long term successor of legend Iker Casillas.
However, the United stopper has put to bed those rumours and is keen to rise to the challenge that Sir Alex has laid down for him.
“I am happy at United and not thinking about a return to Spain,
“I’ve accepted the challenge to learn and improve as a professional.
“And fighting for my place gives me a bigger incentive to play well.”
