Spain goalkeeper David De Gea is ready to defend his country in Russia. The Manchester United (MU) star stated he is not thinking about leaving MU  for Real Madrid (RM) this summer. And, also insisted he wants to concentrate completely on the impending 2018 FIFA World Cup.

De Gea has long been linked with a move to the Spanish capital and was close to completing a transfer to Old Trafford in 2015.

Time ran out for the move transpire and De Gea signed a four-year deal with United. De Gea was born in the Spanish capital Madrid and progressed through the youth system at Atletico before playing two full seasons in the first team.

Reports of a return to his city of birth have resurfaced as Real look for a long-term replacement for goalie Keylor Navas. Though, de Gea says he is focused only on his national team commitments at the moment.

My future? The important thing is the World Cup and not to think of anything else that can divert you or upset you. You have to be focused on having a good World Cup – we are all good. Hopefully, we can go far and win.” De Gea told reports quoted as saying by Omnisport.

When asked if he had told to keep transfer matters away from him during the World Cup:

Football is football and a thousand things can happen. But I’m always calm. Come what may, I’ll be the same. It is important to be focused and be 100%.”

De Gea travelled to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup. However, he failed to make an appearance as Spain was eliminated in the group stage. Two years later, de Gea was established as the first-choice goalkeeper in the Spanish team.

The Spanish star David De Gea will always go to the field with more confidence and try to help the team.

It’s a World Cup, you always go with the same desire. It’s the same feeling of doing things well and helping the team, of becoming strong. I’m always calm, really. But when you have the confidence of the coach and colleagues, you always go to the field with more confidence and try to help the team as much as possible,” De Gea concluded.
