The 24-year-old’s future has been a source of uncertainty in recent weeks and months, with his current Old Trafford deal set to expire at the end of next season.
Real Madrid has been touted as a possible destination for the Spanish shot-stopper as De Gea continues to be linked with a move away from United.
Now, the goalkeeper’s girlfriend, Edurne Garcia, has insisted that she only likes Manchester because De Gea is there.
Asked about living in the English city Garcia told Spanish television show El Hormiguero: “It’s not very nice, that’s for sure. You have to hunt out specific places, the nice places.
“But even then Spain is nicer. The reason I like it is because David’s there. With him being there, everything looks wonderful.”
Former Atletico Madrid shot-stopper De Gea has started all of Manchester United’s Premier League games this season.
He will be expecting to feature when Louis van Gaal’s side host Tottenham on Sunday at Old Trafford.
