David De Gea: Could return for Manchester United against Arsenal

David de Gea has refused to divulge if his new Manchester United contract contains a clause that would allow him to move to Real Madrid. 

De Gea is now very much back in favour at Manchester United having almost joined the Spanish giants earlier this season.

The Spain goalkeeper signed a new contract with United until 2019, with some speculating that the new deal only delays the inevitable and that the contract contains a clause enabling him to join Real Madrid if they come back in for him.

De Gea, however, refused to reveal whether his new contract contains such a clause.

“You should ask [my agent] Jorge [Mendes] that question; he’s the one who pays attention to those details,” he said.

De Gea feels he’s currently playing better than ever having returned to the United side and again impressed as Spain claimed a 1-0 win over Ukraine in their Euro 2016 qualifier.

“I’m in the best form of my career. I always try and do my best. Things worked out well and the important thing was to win the game,” he added

“I always give my all and against Ukraine luck was on my side too. This is the way forward.

“For a goalkeeper, all saves are important, but if I had to choose one, maybe the stop with my feet in the first half with the game tied at 0-0. I’d opt for that one as my favourite.”
