Reports are out claiming that Juan Mata insists David De Gea will continue on as normal despite missing out on a summer move to Real Madrid.
The 24-year-old goalkeeper was set to land a £29million transfer from Manchester United to Madrid last Monday but the necessary paperwork was not submitted on time.
De Gea was banking on a return to his home city but will now have to spend at least the first half of the season with the Red Devils – something Mata believes he will do without complaint.
Mata said: “I’ve talked with him a lot. There have been hectic and stressful days but he is such a quiet, centred person, nothing changes.
“The last two years David has been the best player in our team. His saves have earned us a lot of points. I have no doubt this will be a very good year, too.
“I don’t think there’ll be a problem with the club, the coach or the fans. That’s what I perceive. The fans love him very much, he’s highly regarded by the club and the coach.
“I think it will be the same. (Ander) Herrera and I will continue saving on petrol.”
