David de Gea to stay with Man United: Mourinho


24 July, 2017

Manchester United tour squad: De Gea, Romero, J Pereira, Bailly, Blind, Jones, Smalling, Shaw, Darmian, Rojo, Fosu-Mensah, Lindelof, Tuanzebe, Mitchell, Pogba, Herrera, Fellaini, Carrick, Mata, Young, Valencia, Mkhitaryan, McTominay, A Pereira, Lukaku, Rashford, Martial, Lingard.

"But from distance, it is easy to feel that I repeat the same, the market is very hard".

Several reports have Danilo, a 26-year-old right-back who helped Real's Champions League titles runs the past two seasons, set for Manchester City pending a medical. He's a very honest boy, very straight and he was contacted for a long time.

"So we opened it and then they chose to close".

"I don't think the feeling from him (towards Real) is very good. I see him very happy and focused and working better than ever so for me 100% he stays with us". I like my group, I like my players and I go with them.

"There has been strong interest from other clubs, but it has always been my ambition to play for Pep Guardiola", Danilo told his new club's official website.

"He was never on my list", Mourinho said of the Welsh attacker.

It is understood that manager Zinedine Zidane did not want the full-back to leave, but was resigned to seeing the Brazilian's departure after he expressed a desire for first team football.

Mourinho still hopes to add a further two players to his squad before the end of the summer transfer window, despite describing the market as "very difficult". "It is clear Bale likes Madrid".

"Names is hard for me, the players belong to clubs and are in preseason", he said. "As soon as I heard of his interest, I knew immediately I wanted to be a City player".
