De Gea will not rule out Real Madrid move

Sánchez, who was not prime minister at the time, said he was "uneasy" about De Gea being Spain's number 1 going into the tournament.

However, Real Madrid have been handed a huge boost this week in their pursuit of signing de Gea as the player has refused to rule out a possible exit from Manchester United this summer. The 27-year-old has always been linked with a move to the Spanish capital and was close to completing a transfer to Old Trafford in 2015.

Ronaldo poses the most obvious threat to De Gea and his global colleagues, with the five-time Ballon d'Or victor coming off the back of another goal-laden club season which saw him find the target 44 times across all competitions.

De Gea said his full focus was now on the World Cup despite continuing speculation that he could join Real Madrid, with Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak mooted as a potential replacement.


"You have to be focused on having a good World Cup. The issue is that what he said back in the day was in public and that is why I think the apology should also be a public one", De Gea was quoted as saying by Diario AS. Our qualifying campaign was nearly ideal and our idea is to carry that through in the finals, with a little luck and the team we've got, hopefully we can go far. "Football is football and anything can happen but as always, I am calm". "I still don't know what was behind it all and everything that came out a few days before the start of Euro 2016". "There are many people who do not deserve to do interviews for them".

I'm a quiet, peaceful guy and I'm not usually affected by things - personally, I wasn't too affected by it but I have family, people who are close to me and it's not right that they should be affected.

'We are very excited, there is a good team, a good group.

Football is football and millions of things can happen. "I just want to be 100 percent focused on the World Cup".
