Metro have Manchester United fans looking shocked after claiming that David De Gea has STALLED on transfer talks with the club and could well decide to join Real Madrid in the summer.
The Spaniard is well aware of the fact that Real Madrid are interested in him.
The former Atletico Madrid stopper knows that extending his contract with United – which runs out in 18 months’ time – could well put the Spanish giants off and see them look elsewhere.
With the form of Iker Casillas declining with each passing game, De Gea has already replaced him in the Spanish national set up and now would be keen to return to Spain and replace him at Real Madrid.
As one of our punters notes, Louis van Gaal might not be too keen on this but we certainly think De Gea’s head will be turned as Los Blancos begin to court him publicly.
Being willing to turn down the new £30 million deal on offer from United is certainly a statement of intent and one that Real Madrid and Jorge Mendes will take as a massive boost.
Manchester United fans. Does De Gea’s stalling say it all? Has his head been turned and do you believe he will join the Champions League victors in the summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
