Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has cooled talk of a possible move to Real Madrid by saying he wants to win trophies at Old Trafford and become a club legend.
The shot stopper was on the brink of a move to the Santiago Bernabeu last summer only for the deal to collapse after the paperwork arrived beyond the deadline – an error both clubs blamed on each other at the time.
The Spain international continues to be linked with move to Los Blancos this coming summer despite the transfer ban being handed down on the 10-time Champions League winners this week.
But ahead of his side’s game against Liverpool, De Gea said he was happy with the Red Devils. He recalled the moment he appeared for the club after his dream move fell through and said the Old Trafford fans were incredible.
“I cannot describe how I felt in that moment. In another country, at another club, the fans would not be the same as at Manchester United. They are some of the best in the world, it was unbelievable,” he told Sky Sports.
And he added that he wants to emulate the likes of Edwin van der Sar and Peter Schmeichel.
“I’m happy, I’m enjoying it and I believe in the team. They were the greatest goalkeepers in the Premier League, they are legends for this club and that is what I want. I train every day to be the best goalkeeper in the world, that is my aim. I’m not sure who the best is now, but it’s what I want. Also, to win trophies for Manchester United,” he commented.
