Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea 'happy' amid contract extension talks

Jose Mourinho pleased set-piece training pays off

"He was good, the only thing I don't like from Chris at this moment is his haircut, but I am nobody to tell him that", Mourinho joked, according to FourFourTwo.

The goalkeeper's current deal expires next summer, with the option of another, while his future has been repeatedly questioned since he came close to joining the Madrid giants three years ago.

Asked if he was considering signing a contract, De Gea said: "I feel really loved at this club".

The report further states that the Serie A giants do not want to sell Perisic as the Croatian is one of their best players.

Those words will be music to the ears of all those connected to United, where he has found love and support that has at times been lacking in his homeland.

But De Gea has been back to his best for United and was hailed as the "Lionel Messi of goalkeepers" by opposite number Ben Foster following Saturday's 2-1 win at Watford.

United have made little impact in the Champions League since De Gea joined them seven years ago - their best effort was to reach the last eight under David Moyes in 2013-14.

Thousands of foreign fighters, from China, Europe and the Middle East, are the backbone of the militant groups. There are an estimated 60,000 rebel fighters in Idlib and its surrounding areas.

As United arrived in Switzerland for their opening Champions League group game against Young Boys of Bern, he said: "Normally I never listen to the people who speak about me".

'Normally, I focus on my job and trying to help my team and trying to improve every training session and try to be as a good as I can. "But we had the experience also here last season where they don't give up and when the game is open they believe".

"The manager said at half-time that we were playing well but not great, so he made us humble and in the second-half Watford came into the game and made it hard for us".

Chris Smalling believes two hard-fought away victories is the flawless way for Manchester United to prepare for the return of the Champions League.

"It's a special competition, a long time that Manchester United win this cup, so we are ready to do it".

"Then we stopped being aggressive with and without the ball, gave them a chance to be reborn and give us a hard match".

He added: "With [the club captain] Antonio Valencia we need to protect his clinical situation, apart from that we go with everything we have and have to try to win".
