David de Gea has denied rumours that he is set to join Real Madrid after several rumours linking him with a move back to Spain.

“Just rumours,” he said. “I’m happy here. Starting problems are quite normal under a new coach with a completely new concept. That’s a process and Van Gaal always says that we will improve, but it takes time. But without a doubt, United have to reach the Champions League again.”
