Although the speculation over his potential move to Real Madrid has died down, David De Gea insists that committing his future to Manchester United by way of a new contract is not on his mind.
With a number of highly impressive displays at Old Trafford, the Spaniard is now commonly talked about as the best goalkeeper in the world.
“I don’t think it’s the time to start talking about the future, it’s not the time to be talking contracts,” he told Sky Sports.
“We have lots of games between now and the end of the season and the first thing we need to think about is Burnley this weekend.
“It’s all about getting your head down, focusing, working hard, competing in training, keeping fit and picking up points.”
One behind the scenes addition at United, that of former Atletico Madrid goalkeeping coach Emiliano Alvarez, has been key to De Gea’s form.
“We have known each other for a long time and worked together when I was a lot younger,” he added.
“He knows what to say, how to deal with me if there are any doubts entering your mind, he has helped me an awful lot. He knows me as a player and as a person.
“There is a special feeling that exists between us, a really good working relationship, so I think if you are looking for a reason why things are going well this season this might be one of the reasons behind it.”
