David de Gea sends cryptic message to fans amidst Real Madrid rumours



Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea has posted a message about speculation linking him to a Rea Madrid by claiming that players who play their trade outside the country tend not to get the credit they fully deserve. The 27-year-old shotstopper has been linked to a return to Spain for a number of years with Real Madrid interested in his services, but Manchester United have always rebuffed all attempts from the  European champions to sign the Spanish number 1. With this latest statement, United fans have been thrown in limbo as regards his future.


Back in 2015, he almost joined Madrid on transfer deadline day but a documentation  gaffe affected the move from going through. The relationship between both clubs have almost broken down as a result given that Real refused to sell Chelsea striker, Alvaro Morata to the 3 time European champions. De Gea is widely regarded s the best goalkeeper in world football now due to the performances he has shown this season, as he has conceded just 5 times in the Premier League and keeping 8 clean sheets in 11 matches.

Speaking during the international break while on duty for Spain, he said “I think that the players who leave Spain are not paid as much attention as those who stay in Spain,”“And people tend to forget about us a little.”The English culture cares for and loves its players a llot. “The English culture cares for and loves its players a lot”. This latest admission means that if United don’t extend his current deal which expires in 2019, there’s a chance that he could still leave to join the Santiago Bernabeu outfit despite his links with their bitter rivals, Atletico Madrid, the club he left to join United in a £19m deal back in 2011.

De Gea is not always that rated in Spain as he left the country as a teenager for greener pastures and wants a move back to the club to cement his place as the country’s number 1 keeper and be closer to his family.

De Gea is a classy goalkeeper famed for his remarkable reflexes, shotstopping ability, aerial ability and ability to play the ball from the back. He joined United in 2011 as the long-term replacement for Edwin Van der Sar and has won a league title, Europa League, League Cup, FA Cup and Community Shield titles in that time, as well as being named in the PFA Team of the Year three times.
