De Gea admits uncertainty over long-term Manchester United future as Real Madrid circlePublished February 9, 2017
David De Gea’s Manchester United future remains far from clear, with the Spaniard admitting to uncertainty over his long-term position at Old Trafford.
A long-standing target for Real Madrid, the La Roja No.1 saw a 2015 move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu move collapse at the eleventh hour due to United’s failure to sign a replacement.
Since then, the 26-year-old has enjoyed a hugely successful few seasons on a personal level, as he has displaced Iker Casillas as Spain’s first-choice and become one of the Premier League’s best shot-stoppers.
Madrid-based publication MARCA today claims that Real are currently weighing up a return bid for the former Atletico man’s services, with Los Blancos particularly interested in speculation that De Gea’s contract contains a €65m buy-out clause.
And in a recent interview (via MARCA), the talented custodian admitted that he was unsure what the future would bring for him in light of the constant rumours surrounding a potential move.
“Nobody knows what the future holds,” he said. “I am very happy where I am right now and I’m at a great club.
“I’m not going to discuss this issue any further.
“Now is the time to keep focusing on my current club.”
De Gea has made 262 appearances for the Red Devils since joining from Atletico in 2011.
During his time in England, he has won the Premier League and the FA Cup.
