Manchester United fans here in the Tavern are drinking away their sorrows after their 1-0 defeat away at St James’ Park has them feeling underwhelmed.
Not even David De Gea could save the Red Devils against Newcastle United in yesterday’s Super Sunday encounter, as Matt Ritchie’s second-half strike inflicted a second straight defeat on Jose Mourinho’s side. Indeed, United’s Spanish shot-stopper has been incredible so far this season, as he continues to establish himself as one of the world’s best goalkeepers. And, he’s a player that’s even attracted the attention of the world champions, as according to reports in the Don Balon, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez’s goalkeeping plan A is David De Gea.
Indeed, Keylor Navas is nearing the end of his time in the Spanish capital as Los Blancos look elsewhere for a goalkeeping replacement, and Manchester United’s David De Gea appears to top that list. Although, this won’t be an easy task for Perez to pull off, as Mourinho himself came out to say that he’s adamant he won’t let ‘keeper De Gea depart from Old Trafford.
Of course, the Spaniard has been the saviour on multiple occasions for the Red Devils so far this season, often pulling off some quite remarkable shot-stopping abilities at crucial times where they need him the most. In terms of the future of Manchester United this man is priceless, a player that could quite easily hand them their next Premier League title if the right players can be found around him.
Nevertheless, although it appears as if Real Madrid will attempt everything they possibly can to bring the Spanish international to his home country in the summer, they’ll have to go to extreme lengths to even get United to blink an eye at any approach that might be made.
David De Gea should be kept at all costs by Manchester United, as a player that’s given them nothing but his absolute best in every performance for the club. He’s one of the world’s best goalkeepers who could bring success to any side, meaning that the Red Devils must have him sized up in their plans in order to bring about any glory in years to come. However, Real Madrid may be persistent with their quest to sign the goalkeeper, which requires both De Gea and the club to only focus on the task ahead in Manchester.
