In the latest edition of UPTV’s Transfer Daley series, Sam looks at reports suggesting David de Gea’s move to Real Madrid is set to be announced in the coming days.
Of course, Manchester United fans have long since accepted that the Spaniard will leave the club but the news will still come as a bitter pill to swallow.
It also looks like Madrid will sign him for a nominal fee which is incredibly difficult to take considering he is one of the world’s best goalkeepers.
Unfortunately, Man United missed a trick by not extending De Gea’s contract when they had the chance.
De Gea looks to be leaving Old Trafford but Ilkay Gundogan may well be coming in, if you believe United’s gambling partner Bwin.
A pair of bizarre tweets, which were quickly deleted, suggested fans can “say hello” to the German midfielder. The episode just goes to show that the hysteria surrounding United and potential transfers can reach ridiculous levels.
Finally, United are said to be close to signing Rodrigo Dourado and Bastian Schweinsteiger. The former would be one for the future while the latter would provide a wealth of experience in Louis van Gaal’s midfield. As ever, UPTV will be bringing you the latest updates every day.
