Danilo explains why he rejected Chelsea for Manchester City

David de Gea is one of Manchester United's strongest players but has had his head turned by Real Madrid for a few years.

Ander Herrera has insisted that Manchester United would not win the title next season if they sold David de Gea.

Speaking in Santa Clara California ahead United's next pre-season friendly game against Real, Mourinho said: "I can guarantee that he's not going this season, and it is my feeling it will be very hard for him to go".

"Yeah, the same (as Ronaldo)", Mourinho said ahead of facing his former club in the International Champions Cup in Santa Clara. "It will be very hard for him to go because he's a very honest boy, very straight." said the Portuguese manager. He was contacted for a long time, the club was closed [to the idea].

Mourinho has looked to rectify the glory days since his arrive at Old Trafford, with signings such asPogba last summer and Romelu Lukaku in the current window. I presume the idea is to gradually incorporate the youth team players into the first team as time goes by.

In the last five matches of Real Madrid, they have won four matches and lost one match in UEFA Champions League against Atletico Madrid.

"I don't think the feeling from him [towards Real] is very good". And my feeling is that it will be very hard for him to go.

ROMERO HAS IMPROVED DE GEAAfter discussing De Gea's future at United, Mourinho spoke about his impressive stable of goalkeepers and how Sergio Romero's top form in 2016/17 has already lifted David's training level. I think it is clear Bale likes Madrid, the challenge, the situation. I never felt a desire from him to leave.

Meanwhile, Alex Sandro is yet to agree a new contract with Juve, who were defeated 2-1 in the International Champions Cup clash with Barcelona on Saturday.
