Influential football agent Jorge Mendes has revealed that his client David De Gea is not moving anywhere and staying put at Manchester United, but did not comment on whether the Spanish international goalkeeper will sign a new contract at Old Trafford. De Gea, who moved to Manchester in 2011, will run out of contract in 2016 and is speculated to move to Real Madrid.

De Gea is happy at Manchester and won’t leave: Mendes

The 20-times League champions are reported to be interested in keeping their reigning Player of the Year, but there have been still no signs of renewing the Madrid-born stopper’s contract.

In the current scenario, De Gea will move to another club at the end of next season, but in an chat with BBC Sport, Mendes revealed saying: "He has one year left on his contract and I think that he will stay in Manchester. The player will decide, but he's happy there, at the moment."

The 49-year-old famous agent also added that United should have replaced Sir Alex Ferguson with the former Real Madrid coach, as he thought the Portuguese is also a “genius.”

Manchester United replaced Sir Alex Ferguson with David Moyes in the same summer as Jose Mourinho made a comeback to Chelsea. Mendes, who represents Mourinho, feels that if Mourinho had been recruited by United, they would have been the league leaders currently.

The Red Devils are currently 10 points behind Chelsea in the Premier League. Mendes said: "It is completely impossible to find someone like Sir Alex Ferguson because he's a god, he's a genius and to find a genius is very difficult. You have one in England: Jose Mourinho.”

"Having Sir Alex Ferguson ensures at this moment you have 12 or 15 points more. He's finished his career, but he's someone that's the difference.”
