David De Gea has described playing for Manchester United as "a dream."
De Gea, 26, was again linked with a move to Real Madrid in the summer but the transfer deadline passed on Thursday with the goalkeeper still at Old Trafford.
The Spain international, who almost moved to the Bernabeu in 2015, is under contract until 2019 with the option of another year.
United are expected to begin talks with De Gea next year over an extended deal in the hope of warding off further interest from Madrid.
He told MUTV: "When you get older, you start to dream about being there, about being at a top team, so of course it's a dream to be at a team like Manchester United."
De Gea is yet to concede this season as United have started the season with three consecutive wins.
After the international break, Jose Mourinho's team travel to the bet365 Stadium on Saturday to face Stoke.
De Gea added: "It's really good, but I like to keep my focus, keep working hard and doing my best."
