Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is set to be rested for the remainder of the season, according to Jose Mourinho.
With nothing left to play for in the Premier League this season, Mourinho opted to start Sergio Romero against Southampton on Wednesday and said he plans to hand 20-year-old keeper Joel Pereira his Premier League debut when the club faces Crystal Palace on Sunday. And with Romero set to start against Celta Vigo in the Europa League final, De Gea could have played his last match at the club with Real Madrid lurking in the transfer window. Said Mourinho: "I hope to play Joel against Crystal Palace. I hope to play Sergio in the final. Hopefully we don't have problems with these two keepers. But David is top in the world and obviously we want to keep the top in the world." May 18 - 5:28 PM

Manchester United cruised past Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Sunday despite the Red Devils missing several first-team players.

Wayne Rooney [ankle] and Ashley Young [knock] failed fitness tests to join long-term absentees Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Juan Mata in the United treatment room. However, it was the omission of David de Gea from the match day squad which came as the biggest surprise while Antonio Valencia missed out for the second game running. Following the 3-0 win, Mourinho confirmed his previously ever-present goalkeeper "has a problem with his hip" although he is expected to return to face Chelsea in game week 33. The United boss went onto to add: "We had lots of players that were not here today and the most important thing after the three points was to have no more injuries. Only Valencia is the one I really expect to recover and play the next match [vs Anderlecht in the Europa League on Thursday]."

According to reports in various media outlets, Manchester United are ready to break transfer records to secure the signings of Antoine Griezmann and Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The bid United are expected to table for Griezmann will exceed the world record sum they paid for Paul Pogba last summer and come in at £85 million. With regards to the young Italian goalkeeper, United are interested in the AC Milan man as David De Gea's future at the club remains shrouded in uncertainty. Some reports in Spain claim that a £66 million deal has been agreed to whisk De Gea back to his homeland, and United are ready to replace him with Donnarumma whose price may reach €50 million according to the Mirror. The 18 year old is represented by Mino Raiola, who also has Ibrahimovic and Pogba on his books. It is understood that Milan are willing to part with their 'keeper as they are not prepared to Raiola's demands of a huge new contract for his client.

Manchester United are out of the FA Cup after a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge at the quarter-final stage.

United started the game man-marking their opponents, with a formation which appeared to have six defenders at times. United's game plan centred upon limiting Eden Hazard, who nevertheless flourished at number 10. They were physical and this ultimately led to their downfall, but Ander Herrera will feel aggrieved that he received his second caution of the first half for such a meek challenge. Once Herrera was gone, United focused on resisting the Blues' attack, and only Kanté's well taken low-drive from distance beat the mercurial David De Gea. Mourinho had hinted before the game that United's priority lies in the Europa League and PL, indicating that his true season aim is to qualify for the Champions League.

Manchester United produced another characteristically Mourinho performance at Anfield in Monday's 0-0 borefest.

Mourinho's claims that United controlled the game were only another example of the Portuguese manager's ability to present a distorted reality. The Reds dominated their develish neighbours, holding 65% of the possession. Indeed were it not for the defensive intervention of Antonio Valencia, Firmino would almost certainly have scored. The game's highlight was the powerful left hand of De Gea palming away a fierce Coutinho long shot. United had one shot on target, and it was nothing special. The only other opportunity of note they mustered was a golden one. Pogba broke away from Henderson and lobbed in for Ibra, his header was uncharacteristically poor and never threatened the nervy Karius. Smalling and Bailly nullified Sturridge effectively.

David De Gea saved well from shots by Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho in the second half as Liverpool and Manchester United played to a draw at Anfield.

The Spanish number one has been slightly off his excellent pace so far this season but he was certainly more than up to the task for Jose Mourinho's first visit to Anfield as manager of Manchester United. After losing to City in their first big test under their new manager, United certainly came out blazing with intensity. They lost the battles for possession and shots on target but they kept their opposition out as well and earned a strong point from their hated rivals.

Spain's tournament ends more quickly than most would have imagined, getting knocked out in the round of 16 by a magnificent Italian side with a 2-0 loss.

This was a really tough draw for the first round of the knockout stage as two of the historically best tournament teams went up against each other and one had to go home. It was deservedly Spain that did, as Italy outplayed them thoroughly. David De Gea came up with two huge saves in the first 11 minutes but a save from a free kick was not cleared away and Italy pounces on the loose ball to take the lead. De Gea may have been at fault for the goal, but he also single-handedly kept Spain in it with a couple more top-drawer stops. In the end, the Spanish attack could not break down Italy, with just an occasional flash of hope for Andres Iniesta, while PL players like David Silva and Cesc Fabregas offered very little. Gerard Pique had a chance to level the score on 89 minutes but his shot from 8 yards was stopped by veteran Gianluigi Buffon. Italy then added a second goal moments later to put the game to bed.

David De Gea is finally Spain's number one in a major tournament after he started the opener against the Czech Republic in Monday's first match.

Before the tournament even started, David De Gea was linked with an ultimatum regarding the future of Louis Van Gaal at Old Trafford. The word was that if LVG stayed, DDG wanted to be gone. Throw in being linked to a rape trial, which he vehemently denied, as the tournament kicked off and it's been quite an early summer for De Gea. He finally got some good news as he was selected to start in Spain's opener. This, presumably, establishes De Gea as the Spain number 1 for the foreseeable future.

Louis Van Gaal has indicated that starting goalkeeper David De Gea should be back for the Sunday clash with Arsenal after he missed United's mid-week Europa League match.

The Red Devils will need their best players available for the clash with Arsenal on Sunday. With key players like Wayne Rooney definitely out and Chris Smalling, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Anthony Martial all questionable the presence of De Gea will be a huge boost. Arsenal haven't been clinical in recent weeks and De Gea alone could be enough to at least get United a point.

Louis Van Gaal indicated that David De Gea would miss Manchester United's return match with FC Midtjylland with his status for Arsenal on Sunday still up in the air.

Manchester United are facing being swept out of Europe's second tier competition on Thursday and the task of staying in will only be harder with David De Gea missing out. Louis Van Gaal didn't comment on whether the Spanish international was likely to be ready by Sunday for the match against long-time rivals Arsenal. As United's season continues to unravel, losing De Gea for any amount of time is a difficult hit to absorb.

Initial reports suggest the knee injury suffered by David De Gea in Denmark on Thursday is not serious with the Spanish goalkeeper expected to miss between 7-10 days.

De Gea was a late withdrawal in the Europa League tie against FC Midtjylland after a problem with his knee during the warm-up handed Sergio Romero his first start since October. However, a scan on Friday revealed only minor damage and the 25-year-old could be back for the crucial second leg at Old Trafford or the Premier League match-up with Arsenal three days later.

Manchester United's injury troubles only continue to mount as David De Gea sustained a knee injury in the club's warmup before its Europa League match.

The keeper did not start, leaving Sergio Romero to take over in goal without a backup as Sam Johnstone was also injured. Said Louis van Gaal after the match: "It happened in the warm-up and we didn't know that, so we will have to wait and see the scan tomorrow. Then maybe we can say more but it was a big surprise." To add insult to injury, the Red Devils lost 2-1 to FC Midtjylland in the first leg of the Round of 32. Regarding De Gea, it would be best to wait until the results of the scan before making an adjustment in your fantasy team, considering the club don't have a Premier League match until February 28 against Arsenal.

Jesse Lingard fired in an excellent shot falling away from the goal to give Manchester United the lead but it was David De Gea who came to the rescue to ensure that the Red Devils left Stamford Bridge with at least one point.

David De Gea couldn't keep Diego Costa out after the Brazilian/Spaniard was put in on goal beautifully in stoppage time. It was hardly the Spanish goalkeeper's fault but it was the only thing that could possibly be held against him in what was an excellent display. His most notable save was from a Branislav Ivanovic drive that looked bound for the top corner. He also did well to save from a second half Costa shot that was aimed for the near post top corner. United owe the one point they did pick up at Stamford Bridge to the continued excellence of their number one.

David De Gea has signed a new contract at Manchester United guaranteeing him a high salary for the balance of his tenure at Old Trafford and, presumably, making clear the terms of a potential move back to Spain.

This deal is a short term win for just about everyone except Real Madrid. Manchester United get back the presence of their best player over the past two seasons and eliminate a gaping weak link from their squad over the first month of the season. De Gea gets to cash in without having to wait until next summer for a big signing bonus and bumper salary from Real Madrid. Madrid will presumably have to pay a bigger transfer fee but that's never scared them off before so they might even be winners given the likely presence of a specific figure that will allow De Gea to return home. Of course the agents win because when don't the agents win?

David de Gea wants a new deal with Manchester United after the transfer to Real Madrid fell through in the last minutes of the transfer deadline.

David de Gea was headed towards Real Madrid when what has been termed a computer malfunction led to the transfer not going through on time. The goalkeeper is now reportedly keen on fighting for the number one job at Manchester and his agent has begun negotiating a long term deal for him at United. de Gea is the best goalkeeper on Manchester's roster and despite Sergio Romero's great start to the season, we expect de Gea to be starting sooner rather than later.
