Manchester United Transfer Balls: Ramos wants out of Real Madrid and De Gea angers Van Gaal
Transfer Balls: a round-up of today’s news on Manchester United’s David De Gea, destined for a move to Real Madrid.
How soon does De Gea want to go?
Daily Mirror: “Manchester United transfers: David De Gea wants his future sorted NEXT WEEK”
Daily Express: “Manchester Utd’s David De Gea wants to complete Real Madrid move THIS WEEK”
The Spanish club have failed to come close to meeting United’s asking price for the 24-year-old, believing that the £20 million valuation is excessive given that the player has only a year left on his contract and has consistently rebuffed attempts to tie him to a long-term deal at Old Trafford.
Is the fee £30m or £20m?
Is it clear-cut deal, then: money for player?
…the situation is complicated by United’s continuing interest in Sergio Ramos.The Old Trafford club had an offer of £32 million for the Spain centre back rejected lastweek, with Real insisting that they would only countenance selling for somewhere in the region of £60 million. Although Benítez would like to keep a player he regards as one of the most authoritative in his new club’s dressing room, Ramos has informed Real that he wants to leave the Bernabéu for Old Trafford.
Does Ramos really want to leave Madrid?
Ramos has implored his club to let him go to Old Trafford. Ramos, 29, is unhappy that Madrid have failed to offer him improved terms on his current contract. He has made it clear to United that he is not using them just to get a better contract in Spain.
Any word from United manager Louis Van Gaal?
Van Gaal — who grew so angry when asked about De Gea’s future during a telephone interview for a Spanish television station that he hung up…
The IBTimes has more of that conversation:
“Yes [I’m angry with the saga], but I have no problem with it,” Van Gaal said.
“I don’t want to respond to this issue through the media. I’ll talk to my bosses, not the media, but I have no problem.”
Such are the facts.
