Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera believes that the only way to stop goalkeeper David De Gea from going to Real Madrid is to keep winning trophies.
In addition to Herrera sees no reason why his teammate De Gea would leave the club for Real Madrid.
“I can see him staying here for more years, but we need to win titles to keep him with us. That is what we did last season. David is really happy at the moment because we are fighting for everything. We won three titles last season, and the FA Cup the year before, and that is what he wants.” Herrera said
The 26-year-old keeper was linked with a move to Real Madrid in 2015. However, the transfer collapsed and the Los Blancos failed to materialize the move that led for De Gea to signed a new contract that will keeps him at Old Trafford until 2019 with the option of another year.
Herrera expects that Madrid will make a bid for the Spain international keeper but he is confident that De Gea will stay since Manchester United has a similar level to the reigning European champions.
“Real Madrid are going to talk about it every summer because he is the best keeper in the world. But we don’t think we are far from Real Madrid — we won three titles last season, the only English team to do it. We are going to enjoy having him here and try to keep him at the club for as long as possible.
For me, he is the No. 1. I respect all the keepers like Manuel Neuer, Gianluigi Buffon and Marc-Andre ter Stegen, but David right now is the No. 1 in the world.” The 28-year old added.
