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. Jul 26 - 8:32 PM

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.

David De Gea made a critical save from a Glenn Murray attempt to keep United level and provide the platform for them to go on and win 2-1 at Selhurst Park.

David De Gea has been Manchester United's best player over the course of the 2014-15 season. He was a hero again in Week 36 as his save on Glenn Murray kept things even and eventually set up the United road win. With Liverpool nipping at United's heels for fourth place heading into the weekend, the win, combined with Liverpool's draw with Chelsea have United secure in fourth and headed back to the Champions League. Now, will De Gea stick around or head back to Spain this summer?
May 14 - 10:04 AM

David De Gea can't be particularly happy with life at Old Trafford right now as United haven't scored in three weeks as they have dropped to the edge of the Champions League positions.

With news of Real Madrid's interest swirling in the media seemingly every day, this is hardly the time for Manchester United to lose their form and risk being out of the Champions League. As De Gea sees a Chris Brunt free kick deflect off Jonas Olsson and into the United net while RvP is having a penalty saved at the other end of the pitch, Real Madrid are playing in the Champions League semi-final. Given the seeming gaps in United's roster, it's hard to see exactly what would be keeping De Gea at Old Trafford this summer if Real really do come knocking.
May 7 - 9:35 AM

Former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has accepted an offer to join Manchester United.

The Spain international, who has been training with United in his bid to recover from a serious knee injury, has agreed to an 18-month contract (plus a one year option). Valdes, 32, won six La Liga and three Champions League titles with Barcelona, before leaving at the end of last season when his contract expired. The deal could lead to reserve keeper Anders Lindegaard leaving Old Trafford. It also poses a question about the future of 24-year-old first-choice goalkeeper David De Gea, who was the club's player of the year last season and has excelled again this term. His contract is due to expire in 2016, although senior United sources have said they were relaxed about him signing an extension to that deal.

In an almost perfect day for Manchester United, their big stars grabbed the goals and their shot-stopper David De Gea was brilliant as the Red Devils won their sixth straight league game 3-0 over Liverpool.

Normally when there are multiple goals, the scorers will get the plaudits but a light has to be shined on the young Spanish keeper, who has really matured into one of the league's best stoppers and deserves as much credit as anyone for the turnaround at Old Trafford. As for the goals, Antonio Valencia delivered a crisp cross to Wayne Rooney who struck for his sixth of the season to open the scoring, then Juan Mata put the hosts up 2-0 near the half, tapping in a glancing header by Robin van Persie, though it was clear that Mata was offside. van Persie would get one for himself to seal the deal in the 2nd half. United are still looking at the title race through binoculars, but the distance is shortening. If Louis van Gaal can ever get a healthy defense in front of De Gea, who knows how high they may finish.

Manchester United appeared to be cruising but it took two brilliant David De Gea saves to preserve the win over Stoke City.

David De Gea's season stats probably don't look very good owing to the rotten defense in front of him for much of the early going. In recent weeks as the defense has started playing better, De Gea has put in some of the best goalkeeping performances in the league. He was great against Arsenal, he was mostly an onlooker against Hull City but he returned to being exceptional when needed against Stoke City. For much of the match it looked like his only action was going to be picking the Steven Nzonzi goal out of the net but in stoppage time he repelled excellent shots from Marc Wilson and Mame Biram Diouf to preserve the 2-1 victory.

David De Gea was where he needed to be for 90+ minutes against a consistent Arsenal attack and his fantasy output reflected that.

Even without a clean sheet, David De Gea had a huge night for Manchester United and fantasy owners in the 2-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday. His eight saves were the difference in the real match and represented a huge boon for fantasy managers even though he did eventually let in Olivier Giroud's stunning stoppage time strike. United's poor defensive form has held back De Gea's fantasy value for much of the season but he came through big in Week 12.
