The Daily Mail have managed to spoil Manchester United fan’s weekends before they have even started after claiming that the Red Devils are about to lost David De Gea.
The goalkeeper, who has been so vital to them this season in their quest for top four football, this week returned home to Spain and it is thought that he has agreed personal terms with Real Madrid, who have offered him £4 million per year in wages – after tax.
Now as one of our punters notes, that is a huge amount of money, and the Spanish club will have to shell out even further in terms of a transfer fee, but with a trophyless season, the club need a huge signing to placate fans and they see the goalkeeper as being that man.
Manchester Untied meanwhile have a list of potential replacements already lined up and we think Hugo Lloris will be top of that pile.
Manchester United fans. How bad is this? Did you think that the writing was on the wall when Louis van Gaal claimed that he had a list of back-up options should De Gea decide to leave? Let us know your thoughts below.
