There are some worried faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern, and they all belong to Manchester United fans, who have been reading what the Daily Mirror have to say about David De Gea.
The goalkeeper apparently no longer has a relationship with Louis van Gaal, and it is all because of his proposed move to Real Madrid, and how badly that has fallen through.
United and LVG are trying to insist that the player is not for sale, but as our regulars note, Real Madrid and De Gea seem happy to wait until the goalkeeper’s contract is up and he can leave on a free – and frankly we don’t blame him.
Failing to play De Gea for the season could well end up costing LVG, who certainly seems to be digging his heels into the sand over the move.
United fans. Is this the fault of the manager or the Spanish stopper? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
