Staying Put: Man United don’t expect to sell David De Gea to Real Madrid this season [BBC]

The BBC – undoubtedly the most reliable source of football news in the British media – have today announced that Manchester United expect David De Gea to remain at Old Trafford for the entire 2015-16 season.

De Gea has been tracked by Real Madrid all summer long, however Los Blancos and the Red Devils have failed to find common ground on a transfer fee.

Man United are reportedly seeking 35 million pounds for the 24-year-old Spanish stopper, who is in the final year of his contract at the club.

As reported by the BBC:

Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea is expected to remain at Manchester United beyond the end of the transfer window.

Real Madrid could have convinced United to let De Gea leave the Premier League if Sergio Ramos would have moved in the opposite direction, but the latest news coming out of the Santiago Bernabeu is that Ramos is set to sign a new contract with the club this week.

David De Gea was omitted from Man United’s team in their Premier League opener against Tottenham, as Louis van Gaal wasn’t convinced that the keeper was focused for the game.

Man United are back in action on Friday night when they travel to Aston Villa, and there appears to be every indication that De Gea will replace Sergio Romero between the sticks.
