Fans’ view: Would you be happy if De Gea’s new contract meant Falcao stayed at Manchester United?

There’s player power and then there’s this. According to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United could keep Radamel Falcao for another year if David de Gea signs a new contract at the club.

Both players are represented by agent Jorge Mendes and an agreement involving Falcao could be used as a sweetener to help push through a new deal for De Gea.

Falcao has been hugely disappointing while on loan at Old Trafford from Monaco this season but signing him for another year may be seen by fans as a necessary evil if it keeps the superb De Gea at the club.

We asked our Twitter followers if they would be happy to see such a deal take place or whether they’d prefer to see both players leave:

David de Gea 23

Radamel Falcao 7

Supporters can argue about the merits of such an agreement all day long but all will be agreed that agents have far too much power in football.

Mendes seems to hold all the cards when it comes to both player’s futures and he will more than likely have a big say on where they end up.

De Gea is loved by United fans but it is becoming increasingly apparent that he may leave the club for Real Madrid. In that case, it is important to remember that United have bounced back from big name departures before. No player is bigger than the club.
