For the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern, it’s likely to be a rather big summer of activity indeed.
With the likes of James Rodriguez and Antoine Griezmann strongly linked with moves to Old Trafford, the resident Red Devils propping up the bar have been waxing poetic about their chances for glory next season.
Indeed, those chances have been handed a major boost today following recent reports in regards to one of United’s biggest stars. According to ESPN, the Premier League titans are confident in their chances of keeping David De Gea at the club this summer, despite links with a move to Real Madrid.
United know better than anyone just how hard it is to replace a top class stopper, having taken six years to properly replace Peter Schmeichel, so the fact they look like keeping De Gea in Manchester has gone down a storm amongst our drinkers.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how fans on Twitter reacted.
Another rumour circling that gets me is,that DDG might stay at #mufc.I don't believe it, but no one in their right minds wud c him leave!
DDG stays it'll be highly amusing #MUFC

I know that Romero's been in top form, but De Gea staying for another season would be massive. Any replacement would be a downgrade. #MUFC

#mufc should ask Real 3 times the cost of the replacement for DeGea.if say Oblak costs £80m, Utd should ask a transfer fee of £240 for DeGea
