Paul Ince admits key Man United star could be set to leave
Paul Ince admits that he is worried that David De Gea will end up leaving Manchester United for Real Madrid
Paul Ince has reluctantly admitted that David De Gea could well be set to leave Manchester United to sign for Real Madrid.
The Spanish goalkeeper has been earning a reputation as one of the world’s best shot-stoppers with his form for the Red Devils between the posts this season.
De Gea was once again the star of the show as the goalkeeper kept a clean sheet in Manchester United’s goalless draw with Sevilla in the Champions League last week.
The 27-year-old has regularly been linked with a move away from Manchester United to sign for Real Madrid.
Indeed, the goalkeeper was on the verge of signing for the Spanish giants back in the summer of 2015 but the deal fell through due to paperwork issues.
It remains to be seen whether Real Madrid will indeed revisit their interest in the goalkeeper in the coming transfer windows.
However, former Manchester United star Ince has admitted that he is concerned that De Gea could well end up leaving Old Trafford for the Spanish side.
Speaking to Paddy Power, Ince said: “I would say, above every single player in the team, he’s the player they should be doing everything in their power to keep hold of.
“Performances [like at Sevilla] will only attract more attention of the likes of Real Madrid, and I do still think that is a true threat.
“I hate to say it, but I still believe he could go there. That interest will never go away, and every time the window opens someone will be interested in him.
“I would say at this stage you can pretty much name your price for him. He’s one of the best ever.”
Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Monday week when they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
