Man Utd keeper De Gea fed-up with 'press and social media circus'

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea admits he gets fed-up with the "media circus" around football.

De Gea says he's happy in England and with United, though tired of the media coverage.

He told DAZN: "I've been many years in a club at the highest level, competing very well and every year doing things well.

"But I'm also going to be honest: everything that surrounds football has become a bit of a circus. Everyone does what they want, on social media and in the press."

De Gea continued: "They just have you reported telling lies or not.

"You go to the news and, even if you say meaningless things, they publish very personal comments, opinions that have nothing to do with reality."
