David de Gea not joining Real Madrid - Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho

The Spain worldwide was thought to be on the cusp of a move to Madrid in 2015 before a deal fell through on La Liga's deadline day.

"He was never on my list", Mourinho said of the Welsh attacker.

Herrera says De Gea's ability means he is worth what might be vital points in this season's title race.

And Mourinho, who was speaking at a media conference in Santa Clara ahead of Sunday's International Champions Cup clash, ruled out De Gea's potential departure and suggested the chance of a move to Old Trafford was extinguished. "And my feeling is that it will be very hard for him to go because he's a very honest boy, very straight".

Mourinho also revealed how the competition from United's number two goalkeeper in Sergio Romero has helped improve the performances of De Gea.

"He was contacted for a long time, the club was closed, then we opened, because I always have this feeling when a player has a desire to go, I don't like to stop them because, in the end, you don't get what you expect".

"So we open it and then they decide to close, and I don't think the feeling for him is very, very good".

"I think you can see he's very focused on Manchester United and he's doing a fantastic job for us".

"It's clear Bale likes Madrid, likes the challenge and the situation". He is in a very good situation.

"I don't hide my plan from the team because in the transfer window last December I didn't use that and I told them my plan was to get four players and give balance to the team to make a better squad".

The match will serve as something of a dress rehearsal for the UEFA Super Cup on August 8, when UEFA Champions League winners Real will again face United, winners of last season's UEFA Europa League, in Skopje, Macedonia.
