Whether or not the 27-year-old will still be in Manchester come the end of the season remains to be seen.
De Gea has developed into one of the best shot-stoppers in the world at the Theatre of Dreams and has been named in the PFA Team of the Year four times.
The newly appointed Prime Minister of Spain, Pedro Sánchez, visited the national team squad recently to wish them luck before they began they set off to Russian Federation for this summer's World Cup.
While appreciative of the personal apology, De Gea believes he should be given a public one.
Sanchez apologized for the comments when visiting Spain's training camp last week, but De Gea said he is still awaiting a public apology.
"I accepted his apology politely".
"It's also true that the majority of public people have disrespected me and haven't bothered to apologise to me in private".
"My future? The important thing is the World Cup and not to think of anything else that can divert you or upset you", the Atletico Madrid youth product told reporters. It's very important to have a good World Cup and I hope we can go far and win - that would be fantastic. "It's easy to talk about others in this country".
When pressed further about the transfer rumours, De Gea added: "Football is football and a thousand things can happen. But when you have the confidence of the coach and colleagues, you always go to the field with more confidence and try to help the team as much as possible". But I'm always calm and come my way, I will continue to be the same. It is important to be focused and be 100 per cent'. But obviously, I have family and people that are close to you who are more affected than me.
