La Liga president Javier Tebas has admitted that he wants Manchester United’s David de Gea to play in Spain someday.
De Gea was linked with a move to Real Madrid on the final day of the Spanish transfer window this summer but a deal fell through due to late paperwork.
The keeper then signed a new contract at Old Trafford before his reinstatement into the first-team.
Tebas insisted De Gea would be a quality addition to La Liga.
“[David] de Gea is one of the best goalkeepers in the world and I wish he played in our league, regardless of who for,” Tebas said.
There are rumours that there was a clause inserted into De Gea’s new deal at United which would allow Madrid to go back in for the player next summer.
However, for now, De Gea is a United player. At the very least, the club will be able to get a fairer fee for a keeper who is widely regarded to be one of the best in the world, and there may be a chance that he changes his mind about his future over the course of the campaign and decides to stay.
