Man United manager must resolve Di Maria and De Gea sagas, says ex-Red

Alan Tonge says Man United manager Louis van Gaal needs to resolve the futures of David De Gea and Angel di Maria soon

Alan Tonge believes that Louis Van Gaal should move quickly to secure the futures of unsettled duo David De Gea and Angel Di Maria.

The former Manchester United trainee believes that the ongoing transfer rumours surrounding the two players are testing Van Gaal’s managerial skills.

Tonge, who had to retire from football at 24 following a spinal injury, can’t work out if De Gea will leave the club or stay at Old Trafford.

The goalkeeper gave nothing away following United’s pre-season defeat by PSG during his first-half performance before he was replaced at the interval.

De Gea has been heavily linked with Real Madrid this summer after his outstanding season in the Premier League.

United are reluctant to sell their star goalkeeper unless Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is part of a player exchange deal.

Angel Di Maria’s future is also still unclear. The Argentine winger has been missing from United’s pre-season tour for some time amidst reported interest from PSG.
