Manchester United won’t think about selling David De Gea this summer, Duncan Casltes has insisted.

De Gea is facing transfer speculation surrounding his future at Old Trafford following another disappointing season.

The Red Devils ended the season without silverware following a 1-0 loss to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final last month.

De Gea was named the club’s player of the year for the fourth time but questions remain about his future at Old Trafford.

The Spain international has been linked with a switch to Real Madrid despite los Blancos showing an interest in previous summers.

De Gea has been earmarked as a potential long-term replacement for Keylor Navas at The Bernabeu.

The Manchester United number one has less than 12 months remaining on his current deal, although the Red Devils have the options to extend the deal by an additional season.

Sunday Times reporter Castles is adamant that Manchester United won’t be tempted to sell De Gea in the current transfer market.

“Man United won’t think about selling him,” Castles told the Transfer Window podcast.

“They want to retain him for sure. Mourinho wants to keep him”

De Gea moved to Manchester United in a £17m deal from La Liga giants Atletico Madrid in the 2011 summer transfer window.
