David De Gea has side-stepped questions about his future at Manchester United, amid renewed speculation over a summer move to Real Madrid.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper has shone in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era, winning the club's player of the year award for the past three seasons.

Such form has led to admiring glances from Real Madrid, who he was on the brink of joining in 2015 only for the transfer to collapse in acrimony.

De Gea subsequently signed a deal keeping him at Old Trafford until at least 2019.

Real's interest is said to be heating up again, but the player would not be drawn on the subject.

"The future, no-one knows," De Gea told AS. "The future is the future. I'm very happy here - it's a great club. In England, football is much enjoyed."

Asked about the potential of a summer move to Real, he said: "I will not talk about that.

"I will not talk about it any more. Now we need to stay focused with my club."

Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois - like De Gea, a former Atletico Madrid keeper - is also reportedly of interest to Zinedine Zidane's side.
