Metro have Manchester United fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that David De Gea could well be forced to stay at the club.
The goalkeeper has made it clear he wants to leave for Real Madrid, but with the Spanish club unwilling to pay big bucks for him, United are digging their heels in and as one of our punters notes over a beer and burger by the bar, United are well within their rights to do this.
We think keeping a player who wants to leave is only going to cause more issues and United cannot risk losing De Gea for free when his current deal runs out.
Manchester United fans. Do you think forcing De Gea to stay and risking losing him on a free is a good idea or will it just bring more trouble? Let us know your thoughts below.
