Manchester United team-mate Ander Herrera has revealed De Gea’s mindset ahead of his return for pre-season training next week.
Herrera went on to say: “We have, I think, the biggest amount of fans in the world.”
“They are very loyal. They have already shown that to him and he knows he’s going to get them back.”
“I remember that difficult summer when everyone was talking about Real Madrid and he played the first game at Old Trafford and everyone was singing his name.”
