David de Gea claims he is still in Louis van Gaal's good books following reports of a feud
David de Gea has denied reports claiming that there was a fall-out between him and manager Louis van Gaal. The Spaniard was clarifying his position after it was suggested that he hasn’t spoken to the Dutch for several months.
The goalkeeper was seen denouncing the reports that put his and Van Gaal’s relationship into question in an exclusive MUTV interview on Friday.
"Everything that has been written in the press about us not getting on is a lie," said De Gea. "We both want the best for the club and the team, and the stories are complete lies."
Van Gaal, who has signed 7 players in his first season at the club, will be hoping to make some more additions to the team this summer. United fans though will be hoping that the Dutchman’s priority would be to extend De Gea’s contract which is bound to expire this summer.
De Gea who has been one of the best players this season for United has saved United on several occasions this season. The Spaniard who had a horrible start at United feels those days are behind him.
"I think this is the best period of my career," added De Gea, the man who is pegged to replace Iker Casillas for club and country. "I am playing the best football that I've ever played.”
"I'm really enjoying it at the moment and I'm just trying to improve with every training session and every game that goes by, giving 100 per cent and concentrating to the maximum. That's the way I want to continue," he added.
