David de Gea breaks silence on contract stalemate

Chris Smalling second right scored at Watford

David de Gea has passed up an opportunity to commit his future to Manchester United, with the goalkeeper's deal set to expire next summer.

But De Gea was back to his best when he made a brilliant late save to secure United a vital win at Watford on Saturday and says he treats any praise and criticism with indifference. "I am really happy to play for this club, one of best clubs in world, so for me it's really good to be part of this club".

'Normally I never listen to the people who speak about me, ' he said. He is now contracted at Old Trafford until the end of the season, with the option to extend for another year.

Manchester United are now preparing to kick off their Champions League group stage campaign when they host Young Boys at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. I never listen to the stupid things they say.

'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.

The Spaniard is out of contract next summer, although United can automatically trigger an additional year, and manager Jose Mourinho recently insisted that an announcement was imminent.

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.

Chris Smalling is hoping to turn his World Cup disappointment into a positive by re-establishing himself at Manchester United.

"Yes, of course we want to improve in the Champions League", said De Gea.

"I would focus on the first match, and after that on the group phase, one of the most hard group phases, and we have two positions to qualify and our focus must be on that".

Nemanja Matic admitted to being "surprised" after the game at Watford that Smalling did not go to the World Cup after playing almost 50 games for United last season but the centre-back insists his focus now is only on his club career. "We want to start well, winning games and try to win the competition but we know it's always hard to win".
