David De Gea says he is really happy at Manchester United.

The Spain international was omitted from the Red Devils squad for their opening four Premier League games of the season after he edged closer to a move to Real Madrid.

However, a proposed deal collapsed on the final day of La Liga’s transfer window and De Gea signed a new four-year contract with the 20-time English champions.

The reigning United player of the year has returned to form for Van Gaal’s side after having kept five successive clean sheets to help the Red Devils move to within a point of leaders Manchester City.

Speaking to ESPN, De Gea revealed that he was delighted to extend his stay at a club where he feels loved.

“I felt in that moment that to extend my contract was the best thing to do. I’m really happy now, at one of the biggest clubs in the world, where I feel loved by the fans.

“Nobody let me down or disappointed me – these are things that happen. You must look forward, and I am very happy now.

“During the market anything can happen, it can all change inside a minute. Football is like that. There were difficult moments, strange moments, but they help you to mature. To be stronger.”

De Gea has made eight Premier League appearances this season, keeping five clean sheets.
