DAVID DE GEA is focusing on staying in Spain while ending his football exile.

The former Manchester United keeper has had interest from the Premier League and Saudi Arabia since his Old Trafford deal ran out last summer.

But sources close to the Spaniard, 33, believe he is willing to wait for a chance to play in LaLiga.

That could mean joining old club Atletico Madrid or even rivals Real as cover and taking his chance to impress.

De Gea is a free agent and could answer any emergency call outside of the transfer window.

He made 545 appearances for Man Utd during his 11 seasons at Old Trafford.

In that time he won the Premier League, FA Cup, Europa League and two League Cups.

De Gea famously suffered a deadline day transfer collapse in 2015 when a fax machine scuppered a move to Real Madrid.

And he has been linked with a host of clubs since going on the market.

Most recently, it was revealed he declined a switch to Nottingham Forest in January.

He was also understood to be "close" to a move to Saudi side Al-Shabab.

Newcastle, Real Betis, Al-Nassr and Bayern Munich were other mooted destinations.
