Former Manchester United midfielder Keith Gillespie urges goalkeeper David De Gea to rethink his Red Devils future
Keith Gillespie has urged David De Gea to rethink his Manchester United future after his collapsed move to Real Madrid on transfer deadline day.
According to BBC Sport, Real Madrid and United failed to get the necessary documentation to the Spanish Football Federation before the 23:00 BST La Liga deadline.
The Red Devils were reported to have agreed a £29m fee with the 10-time European champions, with Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas set to join United as part of the deal.
However, United confirmed De Gea was set to stay at Old Trafford on their Twitter account after the deadline, and former Red Devils midfielder Gillespie is hoping the goalkeeper will sign a new deal with the 20-time English champions.
#DeadlineDay I would get De Gea playing asap.The sooner he puts the Real debacle behind him the better. All Real's fault so move on!

United manager Louis van Gaal has omitted De Gea from his first five match-day squads of the season, starting summer signing Sergio Romero in goal.
De Gea was named the club’s player of the year last season.
