De Gea only thinking of Man Utd stay

David De Gea has reiterated his desire to stay at Manchester United after breaking a club record on Thursday night.

De Gea's 399th appearance for United in the 3-0 win over Aston Villa took him past Peter Schmeichel as the club's record-game holder for an overseas player.

"Sorry to Schmeichel," De Gea told MUTV. "It's great. That means I've been here a long time and I've been playing really, really well to the top level so I'm really, really proud. I'm happy to play for this club for that many games.

"Hopefully I have another 400 games coming! So I'm really really happy."
