David de Gea has revealed that he has no desire to swap Manchester Untied for Real Madrid in January.
The Red Devils goalkeeper has emerged as a target for the La Liga giants in recent weeks on the back of some impressive displays under Louis van Gaal and the lack of clarity regarding the future of Iker Casillas.
With Los Blancos’ stopper reportedly edging towards a move, Real are rumoured to want De Gea as his replacement.
However the 23-year-old goalie – who endured a difficult start to life in English football when he signed for United from Atletico Madrid in 2011 – says that there is no truth behind any of the speculation:
“[They are] Just rumours. I’m happy here.” He is quoted by Goal.
United are currently sixth in the Premier League and have stumbled to a few notably disappointing results this term.
But De Gea believes that things will soon improve under Van Gaal:
“Starting problems are quite normal under a new coach with a complete new concept,
“That’s a process and Van Gaal always says that we will improve, but it takes time. But without a doubt, United have to reach the Champions League again.”
