According to numerous reports including one Spanish paper AS earlier this week ran a story claiming that he was not getting along with manger Louis van Gaal with Spanish journalist Manu Sainz claiming that De Gea and Louis van Gaal have not spoken to each other in months.
To back up his claim he says have you ever heard the Dutchman praise the young Spaniard despite De Gea being the one responsible for saving United’s bacon on quite a few occasions this season.
There was even talk doing the rounds yesterday that Argentinian winger Angel Di Maria has told friends at Real Madrid that he made a huge mistake signing for the Northwest club last summer.
Last night football pundit Francois Gallardo said on Spanish television that De Gea was not happy at Old Trafford and has asked his agent Jorge Mendes to callFlorentino Pérez and get talks underway with Real Madrid.
Red Devil supporters should be worried about what is going on at United and in particular the situation with De Gea who only has 16 more months to run on his current contract.
The news coming out of Old Trafford is saying that things are progressing slowly towards the 24-year-old signing a new contract and while these dealing are never clear cut questions need to be asked as to how United could let this situation drag on so long while they know that Real Madrid would love to have De Gea as their replacement for 34-year-old Iker Casillas.
What are the odds of De Gea leaving Manchester United? You can find out on sites such as legalsoccerbetting.com. But if you ask me, I will say the chances of he leaving is not high. In some ways it could very well be that United has already made up their mind that they were going to lose the Spanish international to Madrid which is why they signed former Barcelona goal keeper Victor Valdes a player van Gaal knows well from his time at the Catalan giants.
Meanwhile Manchester United will be looking to get their top-four finish back on track following the 2-1 loss to Swansea City last weekend as they travel to Wearside to take on Guy Poyet and his struggling Sunderland who will be looking to maintain their current position just above the bottom three. Although football betting sites such as legalsoccerbetting.com/uk/ have United as hot favorites to beat Sunderland, the players and coaching staff will do well not to underrate the black cats.
United will be without star striker Robin van Persie for the match against the Black Cats on Saturday, after having limped away from the Liberty Stadium on crutches last weekend when he twisted his ankle during the later stages of the game.
With still no news on how long the Dutchman will be out, there are two positives in that James Wilson is available for selection, and that Michael Carrick is nearly fit after returning to training on Thursday.
