David De Gea is happy at Old Trafford and will be unaffected by news of Real Madrid’s transfer embargo, according to Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal.
Under a FIFA ruling this week, the Spanish giants will be unable to sign players this summer or in the next winter transfer window due to irregularities.
Real had been expected to renew their interest in the United keeper, who was poised to move to the Bernabeu last summer before the move collapsed at the last minute.
Ahead of United’s Barclays Premier League trip to Liverpool on Sunday, Van Gaal insisted: “I don’t think that is the kind of thing that plays on the mind of David De Gea.
“I never thought about it in the period before the transfer window and now I am seeing David De Gea who is enjoying to stay here and play good games.”
