Sanchez visited the Spain World Cup squad last week, of which Dea Gea is an integral member, before they left for Russian Federation, using the occasion to clear the air with the 27-year-old face-to-face.
"I politely accepted his apology", De Gea told Diario AS as he prepared for Spain's 2018 World Cup campaign in Russian Federation.
MADRID-Spain goalkeeper David de Gea has demanded a "public apology" from Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez over comments he made in connection with a false 2016 sex slur. It's very important to have a good World Cup and I hope we can go far and win - that would be awesome.
When pressed further about the transfer rumours, De Gea added: "Football is football and a thousand things can happen".
"I always put my music on. The issue is that what he said back in the day was in public and that is why I think the apology should also be a public one", De Gea was quoted as saying by Diario AS. "It's easy to talk about others in this country". "Many people have been very unfair to me. But when you have the confidence of the coach and colleagues, you always go to the field with more confidence and try to help the team as much as possible". "But it's water under the bridge". "It is important to be focused and be 100%".
However, De Gea was quick to dismiss questions about his future at Manchester United ahead of the World Cup. De Gea said he is ready to counter star Real marksman Cristiano Ronaldo.
Many recognise the former Atletico man as the world's best goalkeeper and so there's no surprise that Madrid are reported to be interested in signing him once more.
