Real Madrid and Manchester United have reportedly agreed on a deal for goalkeeper David de Gea.
This one has been running in the rumor mill for over a month now and it seems it's finally coming to a close. The deal will reportedly send David de Gea to Real Madrid in exchange for £29m and Keylor Navas. Manchester United should be happy with the deal as it's close to the record paid for a player with just one year left on his deal. Sergio Romero seems set to be Manchester's goalkeeper for the rest of the season and he is a top-three fantasy choice at the position. Aug 31 - 2:32 PM

David De Gea will continue to watch on from afar as Manchester United attempts to decide his short and long term fate. Sergio Romero will deputize again at the Liberty Stadium.

As the David De Gea saga rolls on, the logic that Manchester United are employing to decide what their next move becomes less and less clear. They aren't getting any immediate benefit out of one of the best players on their roster. They, and specifically Louis Van Gaal, seem to be straining the relationship thereby reducing the chances that De Gea's heart will be in it if he does end up staying. At the same time, United seem like they are content to let the keeper stay only to lose him on a free next summer. Maybe there's a strategic plan that none of us are seeing but it surely isn't obvious and whatever it is had better work because United will look terrible if it doesn't.

With the transfer deadline fast approaching, David De Gea has been left out of Manchester United's traveling party for their trip to Brugge for the second leg of their Champions League playoff.

With United holding a solid-seeming 3-1 lead after Marouane Fellaini's goal on the final touch of the first leg last week, the Red Devils are probably in good shape with our without De Gea. What will be of more concern is that the relationship between De Gea and Louis Van Gaal appears to be horribly damaged leaving supporters to wonder whether De Gea will feature and be at his best if a move to Real Madrid doesn't come off in the next week.

Louis Van Gaal has confirmed that David De Gea will again be a spectator as Manchester United travel to Villa Park in Week 2 action in the Premier League.

On the heels of United including De Gea in their squad for their Champions League play-off match against Club Brugge they have decided to omit the Spanish goalkeeper from their squad for their Week 2 match at Villa Park. De Gea's absence means that Sergio Romero will get a second consecutive start. The move also casts further doubts on De Gea's near-term future at Old Trafford as Van Gaal's reasoning for the omission was that he wasn't sure of De Gea's "state of mind".

After being held out of Manchester United's first match of the season, David De Gea was added to their Champions League squad for their play-in match against Club Brugge.

This news isn't quite as momentous as it might sounds due to a technicality in UEFA rules that states that there is an exception to a player being Cup-tied made for play-off matches like the one United has named De Gea for. He would be free to play in the match against Club Brugge and then, regardless of whether United moves on in the tournament, play in the tournament proper for Real Madrid if the two clubs can come to an agreement on a contract. There have been rumors that United are confident of keeping De Gea for this season as well but this action should neither reinforce nor detract from those rumors.
Aug 12 - 3:19 PM

Louis Van Gaal has indicated that David De Gea will not start against Spurs in Saturday's Premier League curtain raiser due to a potential distraction associated with his long-rumored transfer.

Whether David De Gea ultimately goes to Real Madrid or not doesn't look like it is going to matter for Week 1 of Premier League action. De Gea will sit out until his future is sorted and Manchester United will be forced to start either Sergio Romero or Victor Valdes. With Valdes out of favor, the newly arrived Romero seems most likely to get the start. Regardless of what you think about the rest of Manchester United's transfer activity this summer, the goalkeeping situation is definitely a bit of a mess.

Manchester United have signed Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero.

It seems the Red Devils are getting ready to part ways with David de Gea as they've reached a deal with Romero, who is a free-agent. The 28-year-old goalkeeper has played in Europe before when he won the Eredivisie with AZ Alkmaar in 2009. Reports are suggesting that Romero is signed strictly as a backup and United will try to sign a new goalkeeper if de Gea does indeed leave for Real Madrid, but Romero is likely good enough to fill in the starting role if United can't sign another goalkeeper. If he finds himself with the starting goalkeeper role, he immediately becomes a top fantasy choice at goalkeeper.

Manchester United won their pre-season curtain raiser against Mexican side America thanks to a goal by new midfield signing Morgan Schneiderlin just 5 minutes into his debut. However the games main talking point came before kick-off as David De Gea watched on from the stands.

However post-match Louis van Gaal revealed that the Real Madrid target was not risked along with team mate Antonio Valencia due to a "minor injury" while Marouane Fellaini also sat out of the match at CenturyLink Field. The Belgium international will serve a 3 match suspension starting in GW1 "so he has a longer time to prepare himself and I need to see other players." Summer signings Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Memphis Depay were involved playing 45 minutes a piece.

With rumors still flying about a move to Real Madrid, David De Gea is set to rejoin Manchester United for the start of pre-season training today.

The player's presence at the start of pre-season training is probably not indicative of anything other than that it is going to be a complex and drawn-out process to get De Gea from Old Trafford to the Bernabeu. There is no indication that there is any acrimony between any of the parties so consider this business as usual until the situation changes. There isn't any indication that De Gea has decided to reverse course and commit his future to United so it would be an eternal optimist that would take his reporting to training as anything other than waiting until the other shoe drops.

Manchester United reportedly want a world record fee for a goalkeeper if they are to let David De Gea leave Old Trafford for the Bernabeu this summer.

If this rumor is to be believed, it is a high stakes game that United are playing. De Gea only has one year remaining on his contract and could call the Red Devils' bluff if he feels like they are driving too hard a bargain with Real Madrid. This may all just be posturing as United look to boost the price or get as much make-weight value as possible in a potential deal for Sergio Ramos but United should be careful not to overplay their hand. The possibility of losing De Gea for nothing next season isn't something that any club, even one with United's financial resources, can handle.

Today's entry in the David De Gea-to-Real Madrid saga is that the Spanish club will sell Iker Casillas to Spurs to help grease the skids for Spurs to sell Hugo Lloris to United to replace De Gea.

With the price on offer reportedly being a low one - between £18million and £25million depending on your source - Real Madrid are going to have to do everything else they can to get David De Gea to the Bernabeu. One rumored tactic is helping Manchester United free up a potential De Gea replacement in Hugo Lloris by selling Spurs a Lloris replacement in the form of exiting keeper/legend Iker Casillas. It all sounds a little complicated if you ask me but it would make at least some level of sense for all clubs involved. Exactly how Casillas might feel coming down a level or three from Real to Spurs isn't discussed.

Rumors in Spain have Real Madrid goalkeeper close to leaving the club with Fenerbahce a rumored destination.

The exit of Iker Casillas is part of a chain of events that would presumably only come to pass if David De Gea is nearing a move from Manchester United to Real Madrid. The rumor mill has the De Gea move getting closer to fruition with the player taking a weekly salary that is about half what Manchester United are offering to make his way back home from England.
Jun 10 - 4:34 PM

Reports in The Sun and Daily Mail indicate that David De Gea has been convinced to give up Old Trafford for the Bernabau this summer.

Manchester United's summer started off well with the arrival of Memphis Depay but it may start going in the wrong direction if reports today about David De Gea leaving are correct. The Spanish goalkeeper has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for some time and the rumor mill has that move becoming closer and closer to reality. The move would be a big dent in Manchester United's attempt to challenge for the title next season regardless of who they get to replace De Gea.

David De Gea is a doubt for Manchester United's season finale at the KC Stadium as he continues to recover from the hamstring injury he suffered against Arsenal in Week 37.

The Manchester United number one has been the subject of a great deal of speculation as to where he will play his football next season. If he does leave then it is likely that he has played his final match for Manchester United as his hamstring issue will likely keep him out of United's season finale with Hull City. Victor Valdes, who gave up a goal in his brief outing against Arsenal, could be a very interesting bargain option in net for fantasy managers.

David De Gea may have played his last game for Manchester United after injury forced the goalkeeper off during yesterday’s draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford.

De Gea was replaced with around 15 minutes to go holding his lower back although Louis van Gaal revealed post-match "I think he has a hamstring injury," which the club will need to assess. Regardless of the prognosis the Dutchman is not confident his No.1 will be available for Hull "His injury. I think he shall not play in the next match" paving the way for Victor Valdes to make his first competitive start since signing back in January. Radamel Falcao is another who looked to be saying his final goodbyes to the United faithful following a disappointing loan spell which returned just 4-goals from 26 appearances.
