David De Gea says he has yet to make a decision on his future following Manchester United's claims a deal is close to being agreed for the Atletico Madrid goalkeeper.
United manager Sir Alex Ferguson revealed on Tuesday that the Premier League champions were homing in on De Gea as the replacement for the retiring Edwin van der Sar.
Ferguson revealed the Red Devils had been working on a deal 'for quite a while' and praised the 20-year-old's qualities to be Van der Sar's successor.
However, De Gea has refuted claims a deal has already been struck and wants, instead, to focus on playing for Spain at the European Under 21 Championship in Denmark.
De Gea's lawyer released a statement to Spanish news agency EFE which read: "News has appeared in various media outlets today that Atletico Madrid's David De Gea has signed for Manchester United.
"I hereby notify you that it is not true a deal has been signed."
The statement added: "De Gea will not consider the contract extension offer from Atletico or any other offer until June 30 when he has finished his commitments with the Under 21 national team."
Atletico, who finished this season in seventh spot in the Primera Division, remain keen to tie De Gea down to a new contract with his current one running until 2013.
