Graham Hunter joked that David De Gea’s price went up following Keylor Navas’ poor attempt to stop Mario Mandzukic’s goal in the Champions League final.

The Costa Rica international appeared to be caught out of position by the Croatia striker scored a sensational overhead kick in the first half at the Millennium Stadium.

De Gea has been with a move to Real Madrid over the past two or three seasons but a move has failed to materialise thus far.

The Red Devils won the Europa League trophy last month thanks to a 2-0 win against Eredivisie giants Ajax in Stockholm.

Number two Sergio Romero started the Europa League final ahead of David De Gea as Jose Mourinho placed his faith in the Argentina international.

De Gea has been omitted from Manchester United’s first-team in recent weeks amid growing reports of a possible move to Real Madrid.

The Red Devils have been linked with a big-money deal to sign Atletico Madrid shot stopper Jan Oblak in the summer.

La Liga expert Hunter joked that Navas’ role in Mandzukic’s goal will have put De Gea’s price up a little more.

Hunter wrote: “De Gea price just went up”
