De Gea unsure over United move

Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David de Gea has claimed he knows nothing of a potential move to Manchester United and that he will sort his future out when he returns from the Under-21 European Championship.

De Gea has been linked with an £18 million move to Old Trafford to replace the retiring Edwin van der Sar, but insists he is only focused on his national duties for now and is unsure whether he fits the bill for Sir Alex Ferguson.

"Until the Euros are finished and things calm down a bit, I don't know anything," he said. "I don't know what goalkeepers Alex Ferguson likes. I'm just a normal goalkeeper, a discrete one.

"Being Atletico's goalkeeper is completely different to being United's and I'm not quite sure what he's looking for."

De Gea is touted to become Spain's future No. 1 goalkeeper, succeeding Iker Casillas, but United have also been linked with CSKA's Igor Akinfeev, France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and German Rene Adler.
