At the time Sanchez said he did not "feel comfortable with De Gea as the national team's goalkeeper".
De Gea is perhaps Jose Mourinho's best player and losing him at the moment would be too much trouble considering the overhaul the manager has planned.
"I politely accepted his apology", De Gea told Diario AS as he prepared for Spain's 2018 World Cup campaign in Russian Federation.
A miffed Spain goalkeeper David De Gea on Monday called for a public apology from the country's Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez over both parties disagreeing over a sex assault case involving the player before Euro 2016. "You have to be focused on having a good World Cup - we are all good".
When pressed further about the transfer rumours, De Gea added: "Football is football and a thousand things can happen".
'But I'm always calm.
"I politely accepted his apology". "The thing is, though, that what he said at the time was in public so I think his apologies should also be made publicly".
"It's also true that the majority of people in the public eye that disrespected me have not even apologised to me in private". But obviously, I have family and people that are close to you who are more affected than me. "It is important to be focused and be 100 percent".
"The press conference I gave already said that it was all a lie, but everyone followed talking about if I should not be in the national team, what if".
"In the end, things are proven and we saw that it was all a lie. But it's water under the bridge".
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 very excited, there is a good team, a good group. "We will try to do our best".
