One of the few shining lights of the whole David Moyes debacle was a certain Spanish stopper who recently reminded the world why it’s a travesty he’s not Spain’s number one, with a mind-blowing display against Everton.
David De Gea has been superb for the past three seasons and there’s little doubt he’ll become the world’s best keeper over the next few years.
That’s why the inevitable sniffing around him from Real Madrid makes me more than a tad queasy. Marca reports:
The name of the ex-Atlético de Madrid shot-stopper has been on the tables of the Bernabéu offices for some time now, and it is said that De Gea likes the idea.
Before De Gea can make the leap from United to Real, however, first Casillas must leave. The veteran keeper has a contract with his club until 2017 plus an extra year depending on how the games pan out. A long time to wait.
David de Gea is not worried about his future. He’s happy and at home in Manchester, where he is currently playing out his fourth season at just 23 years of age (24 in November). A possible move to ‘Los Blancos’ might just be why as yet he hasn’t renewed his present contract, which runs out in 2016.
Although it’s likely one day, De Gea will return to the country of his birth there’s every chance that it won’t be for a good few years- let’s hope so anyway as it would be a travesty for United to miss out on his best years.
