The Barclays English Premier League (EPL) action will resume this weekend. Manchester United is placed fourth in the table, five points ahead of Liverpool and a point behind Arsenal. David De Gea wants United to qualify for the UEFA Champion's League reported mirror.co.uk.
"We already missed out last season, and a team like Manchester United cannot do that two years in a row," exclaimed De Gea in an interview with FIFA.com earlier this week.
Some might feel that it might be an indirect threat as the Spaniard's contract will be expiring at the end of the season, and a new contract offer has not been issued yet. So his future at the Theatre of Dreams remains unclear to the club's fans around the world.
Currently, he is priced at ₤50 million and European giants Real Madrid have already shown interests in signing this talented goalkeeper who has had a couple of brilliant seasons with The Reds.
Meanwhile, De Gea has acknowledged English football's role in his transformation into one of the best in business now. "I've developed a lot physically, greatly improved my concentration and generally improved all aspects of my game," De Gea added. He further added that he has benefited from the arrival of his fellow countryman and former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes.
Valdes too wants De Gea to stay put at The Old Trafford. He also said, " I was very young when I came here, but four years on, things are very good overall. This league really suits me, as you learn a lot here. I'm the composed, calm types, which helps me in my profession. As a keeper, you need to convey a sense of calm to the rest of the team."
United have done well so far to stay steady for a top-four finish. They are all set to take on Aston Villa at the home turf this Sunday after the international break. United will play all their remaining eight games in the upcoming weekends till the last week of May.
