Manchester United fans are living in perpetual fear right now that David de Gea is going to leave the club and join Real Madrid this summer.
So, when De Gea was spotted on a plane to Madrid this week after being given time off by Louis van Gaal, there were plenty of heart palpitations going on but hopefully his trip back to his home town was nothing more than to visit his friends and family.
De Gea’s girlfriend Edurne Garcia lives in Madrid as does his family so it is more than likely nothing more than using the opportunity to see his loved ones but the cynical eye will look at his trip and wonder whether he may have met somebody about a summer move to Madrid.
This is going to be a very long summer for United fans. Unless De Gea signs a contract early on, rumours will continue all summer linking him with a move to Madrid and if he does goes through the transfer window having not signed a new deal, he’ll be free to speak to whoever he wants next year without United’s permission.
