David de Gea has revealed that he is 'very happy' to still be a Manchester United player after his failed transfer to Real Madrid in the summer, and he feels loved by all of the United fans which is a big thing for him.
De Gea was moments away from joining Real Madrid on transfer deadline day, but because of the paperwork being done late it meant that he would be staying at United for at least one more season, and since then De Gea has signed a new contract at United to 2019, and he is very happy at one of the biggest clubs in the world.

There have been a number of suggestions as to who De Gea blamed for his failed transfer to Real Madrid, but De Gea said "Nobody let me down or disappointed me, these things happen" and now De Gea wants to get his head down and keep on performing at a very high level for United.
