Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher trolls Man United over David De Gea

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher is happy David De Gea is staying at Manchester United this season

Jamie Carragher has trolled Manchester United fans after David de Gea’s move to Real Madrid infamously collapsed late last night.

The Spanish goalkeeper was on the brink of joining the ten-times European champions, but the transfer fell through due to paperwork arriving at Spanish authorities one minute after the 23:00 BST deadline.

Liverpool legend Carragher took to Twitter to give his opinion on the dramatic chain of events, which will see de Gea remain a United player until at least June of 2016 when his contract expires.

A one-club player, Carragher retired in 2013 and has since become a successful analyst for Sky Sports, renowned for his regular sparring with Old Trafford icon and former fierce rival Gary Neville in the wake of Premier League matches.
