Manchester United: David Dea Gea Learns From Van Gaal’s Krul Lesson And Heads To Real Madrid

David De Gea farewell


So. Is David De Gea leaving Manchester United for the madness, money and glory of Real Madrid? We don’t know. The player said nothing as he walked off injured after 74 minutes of United’s 1-1 draw against Arsenal yesterday.

He said nothing much on social media, either, tweeting his thanks for United’s ‘unbelievable” support and inviting everyone to join him in the hope his injury is not too serious.



De Gea’s injury will most likely keep him out of United’s final home match at Hull City on Sunday.

So. Has he played his final game for United? That question to you, Louis Van Gaal:

“You are asking things that I can’t answer — I don’t know. I’ve also said the transfer is an individual thing. He has to decide. We have given him a fantastic contract because we want him to stay. He’s had a fantastic season, I think, but I analyse his position and then I say he is Spanish, he is a Spanish international still behind [Iker] Casillas, now a Spanish club is coming, his girlfriend is Spanish, his father and mother come every week or every two weeks to here so it is difficult.”

The thing about Real Madrid is that they always get their man. They and their president Florentino Perez simply have to. John Carlin explains the thinking in White Angels :

“That was the genius of the Real Madrid formula. You bet on the greatest talent in the world, you bet on what was enduring and universal, and then, even if you lost, you always won.”

To Perez the players are the trophies.

What player can fail to be tempted by football’s brightest and biggest football team and the knowledge that they are among the world’s best? Real Madrid buffs
