De Gea ‘very happy’ at United

David De Gea is ‘very happy’ at Manchester United but batted away questions regarding a new contract at the club.

The 27-year-old’s deal at Old Trafford expires in June 2019 with United holding an option to extend the Spain international’s contract by a further season.

“Just being part of this club is special in itself,” De Gea told Sky Sports when asked about the extended contract.

“Being a player and a part of this club is special, so when you get to wear the shirt, you go to away games, that's something you are always proud of and is very special.

“Being part of such a great club like Manchester United fills you with emotion and you gradually realise how much the club means to the fans and the people who work here.

“They really live for the game, so that does become part of you and you can only appreciate that having spent time here.”
