TOP STORY: De Gea finally gets his move to Real Madrid
After months of speculation, Manchester United’s David De Gea appears set to move to Real Madrid in a £29 million blockbuster deal just three days before Tuesday’s transfer deadline, according to the Independent. There has been plenty of posturing from both clubs over the Red Devils’ No. 1, but after the Spaniard’s uninspired performance for United in a preseason friendly, his last appearance for the side, the writing was on the wall.
Despite De Gea missing United’s opening three matches, his fill-in at goal, Sergio Romero, has done well with three clean sheets to start the season, but that doesn’t mean that manager Louis van Gaal won’t be searching for another goalkeeper. The Independent also reports that the manager has identified Ajax’s Jasper Cillessen as a potential replacement.
