David de Gea is feeling the best he has ever felt at Manchester United.

The 29-year-old Spain international has been questioned during the tenure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and has been put under pressure following the return of Dean Henderson from Sheffield United.

The Norwegian boss stated last year than the Englishman would have a ‘good’ career at Old Trafford, despite saying that De Gea is the best in his position in the world.

The former Atletico Madrid man has now opened up on his feelings, and outlined his high confidence levels.

When asked if people forget he is yet to reach the peak of his career by the United website, he said: “Yeah maybe because I’ve been playing a lot since I was very young but right now I feel probably the best I’ve felt in my career.

“I feel very, very well and very confident and very positive and that’s very important for me.

"Now it’s time to be back to winning ways and winning trophies, that’s the most important thing for us at the moment. Like I say I feel very, very good.

“It’s great to train every day here with the coaches and the goalkeepers.

“We always try to learn from each other and try to push altogether. It’s great. If you see the training it’s really good to see the goalkeepers together.

“It’s very important to have good feelings with the other goalkeepers and the goalkeeping coaches as well. It’s great.

“We are training, like I say, very, very well – the whole department of keepers.

“We need to be at this level every day and to show the players that the keepers are feeling 100%. Now like I said we have to go for trophies.”
