Man United transfers: Louis van Gaal tight-lipped on David De Gea future
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says he will evaluate David De Gea situation after 1 September
Louis van Gaal has stubbornly insisted that there will be no update on David de Gea’s ongoing transfer saga until the transfer window slams shut in 11 days’ time.
The 64-year-old has omitted de Gea from his match day squads for their games against Tottenham, Aston Villa and Club Brugge due to the goalkeeper’s strenuous links with a transfer to Real Madrid.
The United manager has added that the Spaniard will not feature again until a move is completely off the table.
“I said three weeks ago that we shall evaluate De Gea after 1 September. No-one wants to listen,” Van Gaal told his pre-match media conference.
De Gea is still training with the first team, and is contracted to Old Trafford until the end of this season.
The 24-year-old began his career with Atletico Madrid before moving to Manchester in 2011, and has since established himself as United and Spain number one.
Van Gaal has also frozen out ex-Barcelona stopper Victor Valdes after questioning his lack of commitment, leaving Sergio Romero and academy product Sam Johnstone as his primary goalkeeping options.
