It must be a scenario that life long Red Devil fans are just fed up of witnessing – A United player has a stellar few seasons, Madrid show an interest, and after a long battle to keep their man he eventually departs for Spain over the summer window. Beckham, Ronaldo, now De Gea?
The answer to whether De Gea becomes another Manc to swap Old Trafford for the Santiago Bernabeu, yes most likely, and yes probably soon.
It is a saga that has already caused a fair amount of unrest amongst United fans here in the Transfer Tavern, and the latest reports coming in from the Daily Star are fuelling more anger, causing a fair few spilled pints!

United Fans what do you think? Does the arrival of Romero signify the end of De Gea? Is £35 million a good deal? Let us know below!
