    David de Gea: 'Main focus winning for Manchester United'


    FM-News

    David de Gea has stated that his main focus is on winning games for Manchester United, not his contract situation.

    The Spanish goalkeeper's current deal runs out in the summer - although United do have the option to extend this by a further year - and talks have been ongoing for several months.

    United manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday he is "not confident" De Gea will extend his contract, but has urged the club to keep him.

    "What matters is the team and all of us being focused on what we need to focus on, which is winning games, rather than contracts or any topics that can be a distraction," De Gea told Sky Sports.

    "What matters is focusing on football.

    "We have an important game against Everton and we have some big fixtures over the coming months. I think that's what matters, rather than thinking about anything else.

    "I've been here for many seasons, as we've said. I've been at the club for eight seasons now. I'm very happy here. I always feel that warmth from the fans and everyone who works at the club.

    "I think it's very easy to be focused on what you have to focus on, partly because we have lots of training sessions and play every three or four days.

    "You have to be focused on what's important, which is the team, winning, doing well in training and being in good shape to give your all.

    "You don't have time to think about things that aren't as important as football and the points that are at stake in the games that we have to win and do well in."
