De Gea, 27, has developed into one of world football’s best shot-stoppers since his move to Manchester United from Atletico Madrid back in 2011, when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge.
The goalkeeper has been in fine form for Manchester United this season and has been earning rave reviews for his strong performances for Jose Mourinho’s men.
De Gea has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid and he came within a whisker of signing for the Spanish side before the move fell through in the 2015 summer transfer window.
The shot-stopper continues to be touted as a possible target for the Spanish side as the summer transfer window draws nearer.
However, the goalkeeper’s latest comments about his situation seem to indicate that he is happy at Manchester United as things stand.
De Gea is quoted as saying by the Daily Express: “In the end, in England I have a great affection and respect that I do not notice so much here.
“But every time I come to the national team I feel fondness inside and it is the most important thing.”
Meanwhile, De Gea will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Saturday with a home clash against Swansea City.
The Red Devils are currently in second place in the Premier League table.
