Fans’ view: Would you sell David de Gea or make him stay at Manchester United for another year?

by Ben Topliss

Manchester United have reportedly told Real Madrid that they will have to pay a world-record transfer fee for David de Gea if they want to bring him to the Bernabeu.

Madrid usually get a player sooner rather than later once they target him so it is hugely refreshing to hear of Man United’s stance.

However, if Madrid refuse to pay a large fee then United risk losing De Gea on a free transfer next summer as he is entering the final year of his contract.

We asked our Twitter followers for their thoughts on whether or not they would sell De Gea for a low fee or force him to stay:

From a financial point of view, it makes sense for De Gea to stay at United.

The club aren’t short of cash and it is unlikely that Madrid would be willing to pay anything near what he is worth.

However, De Gea may already have his heart set on a return to his homeland. If United tell him that he’s staying at Old Trafford then the situation might turn nasty.
