Manchester (UNN): David De Gea has stated Manchester United finishing second in the Premier League ‘is simply not enough’ and the club need to be doing more. United’s second place is their highest finish since winning the title in 2013, and despite the slow progress, the Spanish keeper isn’t completely happy with where United are currently at. De Gea has previously been linked with a move away from Old Trafford to Real Madrid, and while he’s yet to officially announce he wants to leave, his disapproval at United’s league challenge may turn his head if Madrid come calling again. ‘I believe that, for a club like United, even second place is simply not enough. ‘We have to be fighting hard to win something and we have that opportunity next week [in the FA Cup final against Chelsea]. ‘You get nothing for coming second or getting close to the league leaders. ‘In the end, you always have to be fighting to win something, as that’s what this club and the fans really deserve and so it’s just that – second place is not enough. ‘It’s what this club has an obligation to do – get through to cup finals, go on to win them, lift silverware and continue to make this club even bigger.’ There have been reports over recent months that United have stalled in their contract negotiations with the keeper over a potential new deal. But despite these issues, De Gea recently stated he wants someone else to win Manchester United’s Player of the Year award next season instead of him, hinting perhaps he is set to stay. Whatever happens, it’s destined to be an interesting summer for the Spaniard who’s future will remain to be a talking point until he signs a new deal. United take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final on May 19 at Wembley in their last chance for silverware this season.
