De Gea ‘happy in Manchester’ – Mata

Juan Mata doesn’t believe his club and international teammate David De Gea has any reason to leave Manchester United anytime soon.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu this summer by reports in summer, two years after a move broke down due to a late fax, but Mata believes the shot-stopper will remain at Old Trafford.

"Well, I think he is happy and I think he is obviously committed to the club. He has got a contract,'' Mata told PA Sport.

"He is obviously more than used to living England, he is happy in Manchester.

"For me, he is great – great person, great player. If not the best goalkeeper in the world, top three for sure.

"He gave us a lot of points during the last seasons, player of the season for the team, and obviously he is happy and I don't see a reason for him to change. So let's hope that he can save so many more goals for us.''
