Fabregas was linked with United throughout summer 2013, with the Red Devils failing with two bids for the Spain international before the transfer window closed at the start of September.

The 26-year-old chose to stay at Camp Nou for the 2013/14 campaign, but his future at the club is uncertain, with new Barcelona coach Luis Enrique refusing to confirm whether the former Arsenal star is in his plans for the 2014/15 season.

When asked about Fabregas, De Gea told La Sexta: "I've tried to convince Cesc to join United but it's difficult. He feels great at Barca, it's his home."

Earlier this year, Fabregas had admitted he was flattered by United's interest in him throughout 2013, telling BBC: "I do follow the Premier League a lot and it's always flattering when a club like Manchester United talks very well about you and you can see they want you."

Meanwhile, De Gea is looking forward to winning his first cap for his country.

The former Atletico Madrid keeper De Gea could make his debut for Spain in Friday night's friendly against Bolivia.

"We don't know who's going to play against Bolivia, but we have to be ready in case we get the nod," he said.

"I'm raring to make my debut. There's a lot of competition in goal, but I'm enjoying myself and pushing myself to the max in training.

"There's a lot of speculation about who will go to Brazil and who won't. A few players are carrying fitness issues and we just have to wait for the gaffer to make his decision: it's as simple as that."
