Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has urged David De Gea to remain focused despite renewed speculation linking the goalkeeper with a move to Real Madrid.
De Gea didn’t feature in United’s victory over Sunderland last weekend, with a hip injury cited as the reason for his omission.
However, there have been suggestions that Mourinho left the Spaniard out as he was frustrated with his recent performances.
“I’m not interested in the speculation,” Mourinho is quoted by the Daily Mail.
“I think if the player is, he shouldn’t be because we are playing very important teams and every match for us is crucial.
“In the Premier League we lose a match and the top four gets almost impossible, in the Europa League we lose a match and we are in trouble. Every match is one that demands from every one of us total focus.
“I don’t see David having any problem with it at all. The end of the season is the time when players can be thinking what is going to happen with their careers, but I think that’s end of season.”
Possessing superb reflexes, he has made an average of 2.04 saves per goal conceded in the Premier League this season, while he has an average claim success rate of 99%.
While De Gea has kept significantly more clean sheets, Navas has outperformed the United goalkeeper in terms of saves, punches and catches per game, as well as distribution accuracy.
