Metro have managed to get our punters looking alarmed here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Real Madrid have handed Manchester United an ultimatum over David De Gea.
The goalkeeper has been linked on and off with a move to Spain all summer and now it seems that the Red Devils have been told to either accept an offer for the player or Real will move on to other targets.
As our landlord notes over a couple of pints, we think that United will refuse the offer – mainly because they want to hold out for £25 million and not £17m, and secondly because no alternative replacements seem to have presented themselves, and Sergio Romero isn’t exactly a player who we think could be the anchor at the back for the club.
A group of Manchester United fans here in the Tavern feel that losing De Gea would be a huge blow for the club, but a lot of them do have a large amount of faith in current keeper Sergio Romero, especially after his display against Spurs!
Manchester United fans. Do you think that the club will sell De Gea or force him to stay at the club? Let us know your thoughts below!
