Manchester United fans are looking seriously puzzled here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Sky Sports report that Real Madrid will not try and push through a deal for David De Gea.
This is despite a fee being agreed for the player and Keylor Navas even agreeing to go in the opposite direction, passing a medical to boot, and now it seems that after paperwork was sent to La Liga too late, everyone will remain where they are.
That has reportedly left Real Madrid furious, the Spanish press claiming this is payback for Sergio Ramos, and De Gea left with a special suit he can’t wear and in tears.
This is clearly a bad scenario for all involved, and quite if United want to keep a very unhappy player for another year and then lose him on a free remains to be seen!
United fans. What on earth do you make of this mess? Let us know your thoughts below!
