Out of most players that have been heavily linked with a transfer away from their current club this summer, joining the likes of Gonzalo Higuain is David De Gea who still remains at Manchester United despite being linked with Real Madrid for months now.
Left out of Manchester United’s matchday squads for the games against Tottenham last weekend and Aston Villa last night, De Gea has been described as being non-eager to play and this tells you all you need to know about his intentions really.
Clearly holding out hope of a return to his home city before the window slams shut on September 1st, the former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper has been adored in recent seasons at Old Trafford, so much so that’s he’s received Sir Matt Busby’s Player of the Year prize for back-to-back campaigns – some feat for a non-outfield United player.
Having brought Sergio Romero to the club this summer, the Argentine number one has made a smooth transition into the squad and has kept net admirably in his first two appearances for the Red Devils.
When Real Madrid signed Kiko Casilla from Espanyol earlier this summer, it had appeared as if De Gea wouldn’t be moving with Keylor Navas then receiving the number one shirt but in more recent weeks, it appears as if Navas could only be temporarily holding onto that jersey number.
Only time will tell of course but we’ve devised five reasons why Manchester United should give up while allowing David De Gea to leave Old Trafford for Real Madrid this summer.
