Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has
revealed, in an interview with ESPN Deportes,
that Louis van Gaal made sure that he was
comfortable once he returned from his summer
transfer saga.
De Gea came close to joining Real Madrid on
European deadline day before the move fell apart
because of the Spanish giants’ failure to file the
proper paperwork in time with the authorities.
The Spaniard signed a new four-year contract and
Van Gaal, who kept him out from first team action all
summer, reinstated him in his first eleven as
Manchester United’s number one goalkeeper.
While there was speculation that De Gea and the
Dutchman shared a frosty relationship, the Spaniard
dismissed the rumours. He admits that he is not
friends with the Manchester United boss, but insisted
that he is always available to listen to his players,
when approached.
The goalkeeper said: "In the end it is hard to be
friends with any coach - you have a lot of respect for
him, but it is difficult to be their friend.
"But he is a good person. You can talk with him about
anything you want, and face to face he is sincere. We
have a normal relationship between a coach and
"We both want what is best for the club.”
De Gea also revealed that Van Gaal went out of his
way to make him feel comfortable once he returned
to the fold after the transfer window and provided
him assurances about his position in the team.
"From the first I day I came back, after all that
happened, he gave me a lot of confidence, told me I
would play, to relax and keep doing what I had done
