Spain World Cup 'keeper De Gea wants public apology from prime minister

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has refused to rule out a move to another club amid renewed speculation he could join Real Madrid ahead of the new season.

De Gea himself though, has insisted that he wants to forget about the club game for a few weeks and focus exclusively on Russian Federation.

"My future? The important thing is the World Cup and not to think of anything else that can divert you or upset you", De Gea told Diario AS at Spain's World Cup training camp.

It's the World Cup finals and whenever you are competing in a tournament at this level, whether it's the Euros or the World Cup, you always go into it with the same hopes of doing well, helping the team and being a strong side; we are all full of hope going into these finals. Hopefully we can go far and win. "I still don't know what was behind it all and everything that came out a few days before the start of Euro 2016". "I just want to be 100 percent focused on the World Cup".

Ronaldo poses the most obvious threat to De Gea and his worldwide 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. "I accepted his apologies politely", Spanish media quoted the goalkeeper as saying.

De Gea is perhaps Jose Mourinho's best player and losing him at the moment would be too much trouble considering the overhaul the manager has planned. "Many people have been very unfair to me".

"The thing is, though, that what he said at the time was in public so I think his apologies should also be made publicly", De Gea added.

"It's also true that the majority of people in the public eye that disrespected me have not even apologized to me in private". We have a great national team but every game is a battle for us. "It is easy to talk about others in this country". It's all water under the bridge now. De Gea travelled to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but failed to make an appearance as Spain were eliminated in the group stage of the competition.
