Hi eds/other posters,

More a question of opinion really but say real have got cold feet over de Gea and are planning on not moving for him at all. Where does that leave de Gea ?

As stated he wanted to return to Spain for personal reasons, and now if Madrid are not interested he is well and truly buggered !

{Ed002's Note - He has three options. (a) Sign a new contract with MU. (b) Make the move in January for a lesser fee. (c) Make the move next summer and thake the €12M offered to him.}

Could United loan DDG (or one of their other keepers ) out to a non UEFA club (ie MLS,Australia,Asia etc) ?

{Ed002's Note - No, they could loan him to a non-FIFA nation or to a club from a country where the transfer window is still open.}

Would you agree the true winners are still Real Madrid?
Madrid seem to have placed the blame on United, I'm not sure if United will issue a response and are just waiting on time to free up or if they'll ignore it to avoid making a bigger mess. However, De Gea wanted the move and probably still will get it. Madrid are still in pole position IMO, they have a keeper in Navas who is highly regarded by the fans (as shown by the poll which claimed 87.7% or something of fans wanted Navas over De Gea), nor did they give in and pay €40m to United which will probably appease the board and fans.

Of course, it isn't the best situation as Navas will now have low morale as he was being pushed out, and apparently did not want to move to United before LvG spoke to him and he didn't really have a choice. However, as Ed002 said, they can get him on the cheap in January, although if he plays in CL, he will be cup tied (I think) so I'm not sure if that's the option they'll take, or they can get him on a free and give him the €12m signing on fee. It probably depends on what is being whispered into De Gea's ear atm but I'm sure he will probably still want the move. (Here's hoping he doesn't!)

Ultimately though, it's not the best situation and I don't know if all of this is just speculation on my part lol. United still lose out on £29m (including Navas). That said, if De Gea signs a new contract, this would be perfect.

Gibraltar FC could have the greatest goalkeeper duo ever then. well DDG wants to be closer to Spain after all.
