De Gea feeling the love at United

De Gea has, however, been around long enough to ignore his detractors, saying: "Well, normally I never listen".

The Spain global has entered the last year of his current deal at Old Trafford - although the club can then opt to trigger a one-year extension.

'Normally, I focus on my job and trying to help my team and trying to improve every training session and try to be as a good as I can.

In news that will be heavenly music to many a Red Devil ear, the Spaniard - who has won a record four Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year awards in the past five years - was quick to assert how happy he is at Manchester United.

De Gea was speaking on the eve of United's Champions League opener against Young Boys, where he will have to contend with a plastic pitch.

Martial has only played 60 minutes of Premier League football for the 20-time English champions this term, and Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Inter Milan are all believed to be monitoring developments. "It's such a special competition".




The match at the Stade de Suisse will be played on an artificial surface, but Mourinho said: "We are in Switzerland, the home of one of the best ever tennis players [Roger Federer], and I'm pretty sure that the big man sometimes is not happy to play on such a surface, but he has to play and has to win".

Chris Smalling is hoping to turn his World Cup disappointment into a positive by re-establishing himself at Manchester United. Mourinho said: "He's selected but I just want to remind you we can only start with 11 so when you see the team you could try to speak about the ones that are going to play and not the ones that are not going to play".

"They scored and after that it was hard for us".

Martial hasn't started many games under Jose Mourinho this season and was a substitute in our 2-1 win over Watford.

"But in the second half we played to our strengths, we looked like we were the only side going to score as the game went on".

The Reds Devils open their Champions League group campaign against Young Boys on Wednesday night.
