Sid Lowe: David de Gea dreams of more Spanish football success

David de Gea puffs out his cheeks. "Imagine it," he says. "Standing there on the podium, the national anthem playing, a gold medal round your neck … it is a dream."

It is also tempting to tell him to snap out of it and stop being so greedy; tempting, too, to demand that he and his compatriots leave something for the rest of us.

Spain are world and European Champions. Last summer they won the European Under-21 championship and it is barely a fortnight since they won this summer's European Under-19 championship.

And now they want the Olympics.
