Jose Mourinho says there is “no chance” David de Gea will leave Manchester United this summer.
De Gea believes this season, his seventh at United, has been his best campaign at Old Trafford, and The Sun have reported the goalkeeper is set to be offered a new five-year contract by the club.
Real Madrid previously chased De Gea but are believed to have turned their attention to Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois.
Asked if De Gea could leave Manchester United this summer, Mourinho said: “No chance.”
Mourinho defended his decision to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, who face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday – live on Sky Sports Premier League.
Sanchez scored in United’s FA Cup semi-final victory over Tottenham last weekend, but Mourinho said he never had any doubt over the transfer.
“He was playing in the Premier League for years,” said Mourinho. “We all know how good he was, that’s why he was chased by many teams I believe.
“That’s why we fought to have him here and I was sure he was the right player not just by his typical playing qualities but by his mentality.
“We needed that, a bit more experience, mental aggressiveness. It was now or never so it was now.”
