David de Gea has insisted allegations made against him in the media today are all false.

Some media outlets in Spain - subsequently re-reported in Ireland - suggested the Spanish number one was dismissed from the Spain squad on the day of the opening fixture between France and Romania because of an impending investigation in Spain.

However, De Gea has said this evening: "It is all a lie. I feel even stronger about staying with the national team. It is all false and in the hands of my lawyers.

"I never thought about staying leaving. It gives me strength to train even harder."
