De Gea future

To believe reports, playing for United again was the one thing David de Gea didn’t want to do in the midst of the transfer window.

Naturally, the speculation claiming that the Spain international wanted Real Madrid or bust now looks wide of the mark, with the player himself having confirmed he wants to win back his place at club level.

De Gea hasn’t featured for Louis van Gaal’s squad yet this term, but it’s thought he could claim back the number one spot when United play Liverpool this weekend.

The 24-year-old said after Spain’s win over Macedonia last night that his future is the same as before. Make of that what you will.

“I felt good. I was really keen to play. Now I have to keep working hard and see if I get some luck with my club,” De Gea said, as relayed by The Sun.

“The support I have received has been really important. I have some wonderful team-mates and I really appreciate everyone’s support.

“My future is the same as before. I must be relaxed, to continue working and improving, to enjoy football — I am happy.”

Record-breaker Rooney

Elsewhere, Sir Bobby Charlton has hailed Wayne Rooney after the United striker’s record-breaking against Switzerland.

A penalty late on gave Rooney his 50th international goal, and Charlton said that although he was disappointed, he was also delighted.

LVG player negotiations

Last but not least, Van Gaal will sit down with De Gea today and attempt to iron out his immediate Old Trafford future, according to reports.

It’s said that the Dutchman is keen to sort out the issues surrounding the fact that the Spain international almost left during the summer. He’ll likely make his decision regarding the Liverpool encounter based on the aforementioned talks.
