Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has revealed he is desperate to seal a spot in Vicente del Bosque's Spain squad.

The Red Devils shot stopper, who has been in fantastic form for the Premier League champions this season, is yet to make an appearance for the senior national side.

Former Atletico Madrid star De Gea represented Spain throughout his early career but is yet to receive a full international call up.

His absence is mainly due to the quality of goalkeepers Del Bosque currently has at his disposal - with Real Madrid's Iker Casillas, Barcelona's Victor Valdes and Napoli loanee Pepe Reina just some of the names competing for a first-team spot.

However De Gea, who played 27 times for Spain's Under-21 team, is confident he can break into Del Bosque's plans before next summer's World Cup in Brazil.

The 23-year-old, speaking exclusively to Inside United, said on his international career:

"Every player wants to play for his national team and doubly so when the World Cup comes around.

"I believe I'm playing well at the moment and I certainly hope I can be there in Brazil with the Spain team. For now, all I can do is concentrate on playing well for United."
