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. Feb 7 - 1:03 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.
