    De Gea can still earn tens of millions, but living in his hometown and lying next to the woman he loves at night, probably start a family of his own in the near future, and lead a happy life. Not everyone priorities boundless monetary gain, he'll end up with more money than any sane human could ever care to spend by the time he retires regardless of where he plays for the remainder of his career.

    That is fair enough, but I think one thing that has been totally ignored is that DDG himself does want to play for Madrid ..forgetting the gf and anything else..He may have come through the Atletico academy, but Madrid has always been the team in Madrid , and really in Spain too.

    What's the latest news here, or is there no updates?

    The last time I checked, there was generic reports that De Gea wants to make the Spain squad for Euro 2016 and will sign a contract extension to get regular game time he might otherwise not get. There would also be potentially a buy-out clause almost purely for Real's benefit. Has there been anything specific since this?

    Absolutely enlightening insight. So he's the La Liga president but basically knows feck all about what actually happened, but decides to put his opinion out there anyway. Astounding professionalism over there in Spain.

    Yeah, basically that. I spoke to Madrid, they said they did everything right and I believe them despite the fact I don't know a thing. :lol:

    Thick as thieves. Must be the fault of the English. They've never forgotten what happened in 1588.

    I'm pretty sure if I said much to the same to the missus, the bags would be packed and a taxi at the door before I could draw another breath.

    The problem we're going to have is that we're stuck with Romero unless we play De Gea and that would be pretty bad for us, however, if we do the sensible thing and play De Gea then there's no chance he'll sign a new contract since he'll get everything he wants.

    DDG is easily good enough to make a huge difference to our season. Might be the difference between 4th or not, or between a trophy or not, or between getting through the group stages or not. If you agree with that then you have to play him, irrespective of his willingness to sign a new contract. We cannot cut our nose to spite our face. We can more than absorb the money we lose by losing him on a free.

    We have arguably already dropped a point due to not playing him.

    Perez is finding out, it's not MUFC of old that are willing to let top players go on the cheap, transfer fees these days for huge clubs is not a huge deal. So it's the positive that even in a top players last year on his contract, it's still not going to be easy to prize these players away. Perez should have payed the asking price, or given a fee closer to what United wanted, and DDG may have got what he wanted

    These things are all true and obvious, not to mention the fact that our need for him is compounded by Romero being a sub par keeper, but Van Gaal strikes me as terribly stubborn, possibly enough to refuse to play a keeper who is set on leaving for free over one he brought in himself?

    seems legit. Seriously, is there something in the water in Madrid?

    Quite possible, in which case he wouldn't have any complaints if we part ways due to poor performance.

    In the end they were paying the same amount as was rumoured early in the summer. And we did agree to sell

    It didn't go through because one of the sides was incompetent

    I doubt Perez feels like he has been put in his place at all

    I severely doubt that. Van Gaal always lets players leave if they want to, he's a family man and I'm sure he understood why David wanted to go and doesn't hold a grudge against him because of it. He also repeatedly said that as soon as the transfer window closes de Gea comes back into competition for his spot, and he'll win that fight with Romero easily once he's focussed as I'm sure van Gaal isn't blind and somehow rates Romero higher.

    The only reason de Gea will be benched for a season is if he falls out van Gaal, and I doubt he would. He's been professional trough all of this so I'm sure it'll all be fine and David will play soon enough, maybe after building up some match rhythm first.

    Which is why I cannot wait for his 3 years to be up, he has been a good transitional manager, not someone I would want for 4 5 6 years. Doubt he would do that and play an average keeper, or that will cause united more harm

    Just to say, he's playing for Spain tonight. Has had to catch a centre into the box. I think that's been it so far.

    You were calling DDG pussy whipped for moving countries to be with his missus a post or two back weren't you? Odd plot twist.

    Van Gaal saying that DDG refused to play, and DDG refuting that statement will not have helped their relationship one bit though..Because even if he did, the trust between manager and player in private conversations is now not a given.

    That was during the transfer window, van Gaal said it'll be different once it closes. Do you think that David will now throw a tantrum at van Gaal, completely ensuring that he indeed doesn't play the rest of the season? They will talk to each other and everything will be fine in the end, van Gaal won't leak stories like that during the season unless de Gea disobeys him like Valdes.

    David has been professional troughout all of this, I'm sure he will continue to do so. Van Gaal will reward him for that with a start if he does since he's better than Romero.

    Thats not what I am saying at all..but Im saying that it will have affected their relationship..the element of confidentiality and trust has been broken..

    For our sake, I just hope DDG just focuses on the job on hand this year, and save us points like he did before...Then at the end of the season we can see where we stand with this.

    Heard a quick clip of DdG on Spanish TV talking after their match:
    - happy to have played
    - grateful to have such great teammates (referring to the Spanish NT)
    - he's eager to play, and hopes that now he'll have he'll have the good fortune to play for United again. [or something like that]

    Loosely remembered and translated! I'm sure there will be a proper transcript later.

    Sign a long term contract and he will have the good fortune of playing for us until whenever.
