Cape Town - Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has declined to reveal where he stands on the idea of a potential contract extension.

De Gea's current deal expires next summer and manager Jose Mourinho revealed on Friday that he is "not confident" the Spaniard will stay on at the club.

The Red Devils will face Everton on Sunday, and De Gea has insisted that his focus is only on the game and other fixtures to follow, rather than speculation over his future.

"What matters is the team and all of us being focused on what we need to focus on, which is winning games, rather than contracts or any topics that can be a distraction. What matters is focusing on football," he told Sky Sports.

"We have an important game against Everton and we have some big fixtures over the coming months. I think that's what matters, rather than thinking about anything else."

"I've been here for many seasons, as we've said. I've been at the club for eight seasons now. I'm very happy here. I always feel that warmth from the fans and everyone who works at the club."
