The Daily Mirror have Manchester United fans smiling here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the Red Devils will keep hold of David De Gea.
The star goalkeeper, who is a major plus in a hit and miss season, had been heavily linked with Real Madrid but now it seems that the Spanish club are turning their attentions elsewhere, paving the way for United to tie De Gea down to a new deal.
The Man United fans have to thank for this turn around in events is Augusto Batalla, who Real Madrid are keen on bringing to the club when they feel the time is right, and given the starlet is only 18 at present, he is clearly being viewed as one for the future with a loan deal for the end of the season being discussed with River Plate.
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is aware he needs a world class goalkeeper but has finally taken note of Iker Casillas’ form and recalled Keylor Navas, meaning the situation is not a pressing one for the Champions League holders.
Manchester United fans. Do you think that De Gea will be happy staying at Real Madrid? Will it make a big difference now his girlfriend has come round? Let us know your thoughts below.
