David De Gea refuses to say whether he’s staying at Manchester United

Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, has demanded a public apology from Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez over his comments in the wake of an unfounded sex abuse scandal.

The Manchester United goalkeeper was not charged, however Sanchez publicly stated that he was "uneasy" with de Gea as Spain's No. 1 heading into Euro 2016.

Sanchez visited the Spain World Cup squad last week, of which Dea Gea is an integral member, before they left for Russian Federation, using the occasion to clear the air with the 27-year-old face-to-face. What happens is that what they said at the time was public and that's why I think that the apologies should also be in public.

"You have to be focused on having a good World Cup - we are all good".

De Gea has developed into one of the best shot-stoppers in the world at the Theatre of Dreams and has been named in the PFA Team of the Year four times. "It's easy to talk about others in this country".

"I am a very calm guy and it is hard for me to be affected, but you have family, people close to you, who are affected more". De Gea denied the accusations, which an investigation found to be false. But obviously, I have family and people that are close to you who are more affected than me. I always said that it was a lie and yet people continued saying that I should not go to the national team. "It is important to be focused and be 100%".

"It is water under the bridge and it came out that it was all a lie".

De Gea said his full focus was now on the World Cup.

Spain open their World Cup campaign against neighbours Portugal in a repeat of the meeting at the 2010 World Cup in which a David Villa goal was enough to send his side through to the quarter-finals.

De Gea is perhaps Jose Mourinho's best player and losing him at the moment would be too much trouble considering the overhaul the manager has planned.

"We are very excited, there is a good team, a good group".
