David De Gea has distanced himself from a potential move to Real Madrid this summer by insisting he is “happy” at Manchester United.

The goalkeeper has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu stadium since coming close to swapping Manchester for the Spanish capital in 2015.

“I’m happy where I am,” he told AS. “Now, I’m very focused on the national team. It is the most important thing. Do well in Russia, have a good role, and do things in the best possible way.

“I’m always calm, the important thing now is to start the World Cup on June 15.”

The 27-year-old has a year left on his contract at United with the club holding an option to extend his deal by another 12 months until 2020.

Sources have told ESPN FC that negotiations over a new contract have already started.

De Gea was crowned United’s Player of the Year last season for the fourth time since 2013, while also collecting the club’s Players’ Player of the Year award and the Premier League golden glove award.

He has made 315 appearances for United since arriving in a £18.9 million deal from Atletico Madrid in 2011.
