Perez is a LIER – Manchester United hit back viscously at Real Madrid and their club President
Manchester United have not taken lightly to the claims made by Real Madrid club president Florentino Perez where he said that officials at Old Trafford lack experience in closing out the deals in crucial moments. Perez cited Ander Herrera’s and Fabio Coentrao’s failed move to Old Trafford in last couple of seasons and he also highlighted how Ed Woodward failed to present the papers after almost eight hours from the time Real Madrid had agreed a contract with David De Gea.
Contradicting Real Madrid and Perez’s comments, one of Manchester United’s spokespersons commented and said: “The facts speak for themselves. The FA are prepared to back our case that documents were in on time; Real seem intent to move the focus away from their own clumsiness this summer.
‘We all like to blame others but if you let one slip through your fingers into the back of the net, then ultimately the culpability is yours.’
The accusations have flown back and forth since De Gea’s failed move to Real Madrid as La Liga federation denied any paper works being presented before them in order to complete a deal for the 24-year old goal keeper on time.
United’s strong comments do indicate that Real Madrid are trying to cover their tracks by making public comments against Manchester United. As it turns out, Los Blancos are more hurting from the fact that, De Gea now appears to have moved closer to agreeing a contract extension with Manchester United, which would mean that Real Madrid will not be getting to sign their key target on a free or for a skimmed transfer fee, as earlier expected.
