David De Gea has stated that playing for Manchester United is a dream, despite links to Real Madrid.
De Gea joined Manchester United in 2011 from Atletico Madrid and has developed into one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
However, he was close to a return to Spain, with a deal to join Real Madrid only falling through on deadline day in 2015, due to mix up of paperwork.
De Gea has extended his contract at Old Trafford and remains focused on United, despite still being linked with Zidane’s side.
When asked about the widespread praise he has received for his performances, De Gea told MUTV: “Of course, you feel really proud when people think this about you.
“It’s really good, but I like to keep my focus, keep working hard and doing my best. To be fair, when you are really young, you don’t think about the future too much, you just want to play with your friends.
“When you get older, you start to dream about being there, about being at a top team, so of course it’s a dream to be at a team like Manchester United.”
