“My future? The important thing is the World Cup and not to think of anything else that can divert you or upset you,” De Gea, who is on national team duties with Spain told reporters.
“You have to be focused on having a good World Cup – we are all good. Hopefully we can go far and win.
“Football is football and a thousand things can happen.
“But I’m always calm. Come what may, I’ll be the same. It is important to be focused and be 100 per cent.”
