David de Gea has revealed his hope that Manchester United sign players with 'good character' this summer.

United have endured a horrific campaign, recording their lowest ever Premier League points tally. They lost their final game of the season to Crystal Palace 1-0 and were only saved from the ignominy of playing Europa Conference League football by West Ham's failure to beat Brighton.

Speaking after that result, De Gea admitted that it had been a torrid time to be a United player this term.

"I want to forget this season and be 100% ready for the next season and be positive. It has been horrible, a very bad season in all ways, it has been very tough. It is time to rest and prepare your minds for next season," he said.

"Ones who want to stay, stay at the club. Ones that don't want to stay go out. You don't have to stay here."

"The new manager and staff are already looking for new players. Hopefully they bring good ones with good character."

New United manager Erik ten Hag was watching on at Selhurst Park from the stands, however Rangnick denied that he has had any contact with the players so far in his post-match press conference.
