The David De Gea transfer saga may have a resolution in sight. Rumours linking the Manchester United goalkeeper to Real Madrid have been around since January this year, but to this point no deal has been reached. However recent reports in Spain suggest that United manager, Louis van Gaal, has told the Club board to sell De Gea to the Spanish giants.
The AS newspaper has said that Van Gaal has had enough of the drawn-out saga, and believes it is having an impact on De Gea's form. The 25-year-old was substituted at half-time in United's last pre-season friendly against Paris Saint-Germain after making numerous mistakes. After the match van Gaal commented on the situation, where his frustration was evident. "We have a situation that is not favourable for David De Gea but neither for us and neither for the club that maybe he wants to go to."
With the new English Premier League season just a week away, van Gaal is requesting that the club relaxes it stance on De Gea, who has one year remaining on his contract. The Dutchman is hesitant to begin the new campaign with the saga hanging over his goalkeeper and his team.
However despite these recent reports in Spain the word from the U.K is that United's stance has not changed. They will refuse to sell De Gea to Madrid unless Madrid defender Sergio Ramos is part of a deal.
