Manchester United manager refused to speak about David De Gea’s future after he was asked at the post press conference of United’s 2-1 defeat to Swansea City last night. He suggested that Ed Woodward will take a final call on transfer.

The Red Devils suffered an embarrassing defeat last evening against Swansea City and are now at the fifth position in the league table. Louis van Gaal had bought Argentine international goalkeeper Sergio Romero this summer. After 3 consecutive clean sheets, the custodian practically gifted Swansea their winning goal last season.

The Dutch manager has still not named David De Gea among the match day squad as his future at the club is uncertain. De Gea has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and Van Gaal mentioned that unless the player’s future is decided he will not be fielded. 

Speaking about De Gea’s future, the manager said: “I don’t know. We have to wait and see, but I don’t want to interfere.

“As a manager we have divided our tasks and the task is for Ed Woodward (United chief executive) and not for me.

“You can ask all the players, but you have to wait and see until Manchester United make an announcement, or the club where he is going to make an announcement. Otherwise, he stays.

“But we have coped with the situation by buying Romero. That is what we have done as a club to settle that issue. We have done it well.”

David De Gea is yet to complete a move to the La Liga giants but has been linked several times this summer. It was reported that United have also slashed down their demands for the goalkeeper who has just a year left in his contract.

A deadline day move out of Manchester United can be predicted but as Louis van Gaal had maintained that the ball is on United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward’s court.
