Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David De Gea has again played down speculation he is set to join Manchester United in the summer.

Reports regularly suggest the Spanish youngster has agreed the move while Atletico chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin last night claimed both United and Chelsea have made offers for the goalkeeper.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists such claims are premature and the player himself has echoed those comments.

"I haven't signed anything," the 20-year-old said. "I'm happy here and have a contract until 2013, so now the essential target is to get the team into Europe and when the league finishes, we'll see.

"Until the end of the season, nothing will be decided.

"I've been with Atletico for many years and have real affection for the club.

"If Atletico want to fight for me then it would be very difficult to leave. It is my club forever."

Gil Marin told Cadena SER radio: "We've received offers from both United and Chelsea, while he also has an offer from us to renew his deal.

"We'd like him to stay here, but David's future is entirely in his own hands."
