Man United transfers: Louis van Gaal discusses David De Gea situation
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says David De Gea's situation isn't favourable for Red Devils
Louis van Gaal says Manchester United are stuck in an unfavourable position after he appeared to hint David De Gea could be heading to Real Madrid this summer.
The Spain international was substituted at half-time of the 20-time English champions’s 2-0 defeat by Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night.
De Gea has been heavily linked with a move to Los Blancos throughout the summer, although a move has so far failed to materialise.
The Red Devils snapped up Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero earlier this week, sparking fresh reports that De Gea will move to Madrid.
Speaking to the media after his side’s 2-0 loss to PSG, Van Gaal wasn’t confident about the Spanish shot stopper’s future.
“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].”
Asked if the situaiton would be resolved by the start of the Premier League: “We’ll have to wait and see.”
The Spain goalkeeper made 37 Premier League appearances during Louis van Gaal’s first season in charge at Old Trafford.
The Spanish shot stopper was named the players’ player and fans’ player of the year following his impressive 2014/15 campaign.
De Gea, who was signed to replace Edwin van der Sar, won the Premier League title with the Red Devils in 2013.
