After a difficult season at Old Trafford, a spot in next term’s Champions League looks – although it is not yet mathematically – to be over.
With four games to go, United are currently nine points off of fourth placed Everton, and would be relying on slip ups from the Toffees, Tottenham and Arsenal to sneak into the coveted position.
But a spot in the Europe League looks more likely, with the Red Devils having looked a little more impressive of late.
Although the continent’s second club tournament is often criticised, de Gea wants his side to qualify for next season:
“There are still plenty of important games to play.” He is quoted by the Daily Star.
“We are Manchester United and it’s our duty to win every game we take part in.
“That’s what we’ll try to do now because we want to finish as high as we can in the league, ensure we’re playing in a European competition next season and show we are still around and that we will never give in.”
United look set to miss out on entering Europe’s top club competition for the first time in 19 years – when Blackburn were the only side granted access after their Premier League win in 1995.
