The Spaniard is yet to renew his contract which expires next summer with the Red Devils amidst interest from Juventus.

Athough the club have the option to extend till 2020.

The situation is worrying for United with Jose Mourinho admitting he is “not confident” the Spaniard will renew his contract.

De Gea however claims he’s “happy at United” and focused on plsying football and winning points.

“You have to be focused on what’s important,” The 27-year-old told Sky Sports.

“What matters is the team and all of us being focused on what we need to focus on, which is winning games, rather than contracts or any topics that can be a distraction. What matters is focusing on football.

“You don’t have time to think about things that aren’t as important as football and the points that are at stake in the games that we have to win and do well in.”

The Spanish number one has been in England since 2011 when he joined from Atletico Madrid in an £18.9m deal.

He’s been one of the standout performers in the league and United best player in the last four years.

“I’ve been at the club for eight seasons now. I’m very happy here,”

said the keeper, who has been the Premier League club’s player of the year for the past four years.

“I always feel that warmth from the fans and everyone who works at the club.”
