The big saga of the transfer window David de Gea‘s situation is not sought out even after the summer transfer window is shut. The Spaniard’s deadline day transfer from Manchester United to Real Madrid collapsed dramatically as the deadline day passed, but the deal did not go through.
Both the sides blamed each other for the delay and the fiasco is far from over.
Now, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has potentially angered the Old Trafford side further by telling David de Gea to do what he thinks as ‘the best for his career’ and insisted that Real Madrid will not make a move for him in January when transfer window reopens.
The 24-year-old former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper emerged as the best player for Manchester United in the last two seasons and bagged “Manchester United Player of the Year” for the last two seasons consecutively.
While, the goalkeeper has only one year left in his contract and desperate to join Real Madrid, United fears that they may lose him for free next summer and is looking to make a last attempt to make him sign a new contract.
Perez has told the Spanish shot-stopper to do what he thinks as best for him keeping his career in mind.
“De Gea has to do what is best for his sporting career,” the Real Madrid president told Radio COPE.
“For now we aren’t thinking about what will happen next season, we have three magnificent goalkeepers. We don’t know what will happen inside the next year.”
“In January we are not going to sign De Gea.”
“He’s got to do what he’s got to do. It’s very unlikely that he will spend this year in a white shirt.”
“Real Madrid did what it had to do, we did everything possible in order that he could come here. De Gea did everything possible not to renew his deal and we had to make an effort to make sure he doesn’t feel abandoned.”
“There was a kind of agreement with him before Keylor arrived if United had given us the opportunity.”
