David De Gea on leaving Manchester United for Barcelona: “You never know” [Sport]
Its international week, so there are a lot of spurious transfer stories doing the rounds and Sport have splashed with a new rumour about David De Gea on Thursday afternoon.
A Sport reader, Enric Figareda, pictured left, met David De Gea on a flight from London to Barcelona on Wednesday night and asked the Manchester United keeper whether he would ever join Barcelona.
To which, De Gea reportedly smiled and said: “You never know.”
With Victor Valdes set to leave Barcelona at the end of this season De Gea is just one goalkeeper of many to be linked with the Catalan side.
Yet, De Gea is quoted in the English press, saying how happy he is at Old Trafford today:
“I hope to play as many games as I can for Manchester United… I’m very happy with my form. I feel like this is a particularly good moment in my career right now and I hope to continue.”
Considering United fans were singing De Gea’s name on Sunday and the fact Barcelona would probably be unwilling to pay the mammoth fee required to lure the Spanish goalie, we think this rumour is a non starter…
