 The Spanish goalkeeper was heavily criticised for failing to save a single spot-kick in the penalty shootout as United lost the final to Villarreal

David de Gea is reportedly expecting to stay at Manchester United despite speculation linking him with an exit before the end of the summer.

The 30-year-old Spanish goalkeeper had another mixed season at Old Trafford, and battled with Dean Henderson for the No.1 jersey throughout the campaign.

He faced fierce criticism following the Europa League final defeat to Villarreal after he failed to save any of the Spanish side's 11 penalties in the shoot-out before going on to miss the decisive one himself.

Although De Gea's contract does not expire until 2024, some have suggested that he could move on before the start of next season, especially with Henderson expected to usurp him as No.1 for most big games going forward.

But according to The Sun De Gea is prepared to stay and fight for his place, and has not considered the possibility of a transfer.

Henderson, however, has recently fired a fresh warning to his teammate insisting that he will continue to believe in himself as United's future long-term first-choice.

"I've spoke about this for years," Henderson said. "Whether it gets me in trouble speaking about it, whether it holds me back at certain times, it probably does.

"But at the end of the day it'll happen one day and I know it'll happen, so I'm just going to keep working hard day in, day out and my time will come. I was 100 per cent born ready.

I've just got to be ready for when that time comes. There's no excuses when you step over that white line. You've got to puff your chest out and go for it and everything that you've put in day in, day out, all the training, everything, pays off."

One man who could not resist getting involved in United's great goalkeeping debate is Jose Mourinho, who worked with both players during his time as a manager at the club.

The Portuguese boss is of the opinion that neither of the shot-stoppers are "phenomenal", but thinks Henderson now has the edge over De Gea.

In an interview with The Times, Mourinho said: “I think they are good goalkeepers. I don’t think they are phenomenal goalkeepers or, in Dean Henderson’s case, not yet phenomenal.

“When I say not yet, I say he will be. I met him at [Manchester] United when he was a kid and I always remember him asking me to go on loan. He was saying when I come back, I come back to be the No 1.

“He told me that when he was the fourth choice. He is a kid with an incredible self confidence and I think he is ready.”
