The claims against the duo came up in a court case against adult film director Torbe, with the goalkeeper remembering that one public figure to doubt his innocence was Pedro Sanchez, the man who only recently became Spain's new prime minister.
De Gea is set to be Spain's World Cup No1 this summer.
I'm a quiet, peaceful guy and I'm not usually affected by things - personally, I wasn't too affected by it but I have family, people who are close to me and it's not right that they should be affected.
Football is football and millions of things can happen. It's all water under the bridge now. I'm always calm, really.
"I politely accepted his apology", De Gea told Diario AS as he prepared for Spain's 2018 World Cup campaign in Russian Federation.
Spain kick off their tournament with a mouth-watering clash against Portugal in Group B on Friday.
"The thing is, though, that what he said at the time was in public so I think his apologies should also be made publicly", De Gea added.
But it's also true that most of the well-known figures who showed a lack of respect towards me haven't apologized at all - not even in private. "I just want to be 100 percent focused on the World Cup". "It is easy to talk about others in this country". Time ran out for the move transpire and De Gea signed a four-year deal with United soon after, ending Real's short-term interest.
"We have to face the game as we did in the qualifying phase, that is, playing our own game". In fact, Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has reportedly admitted that Real Madrid have the best players in every position of the field.
Spain will open their World Cup campaign with an intriguing contest against Portgual where De Gea will be hoping to shut Cristiano Ronaldo out.
"We are all good". "But Portugal is not only Cristiano, they have a great national team, they won Euro 2016".
