Spain and Manchester United netminder David De Gea was frustrated with the team’s poor performance against Sevilla at Old Trafford last Tuesday. Despite being motivated by the home fans, Manchester United were defeated 2-1 by Sevilla who were superior throughout the encounter.
Having failed to qualify for the next round of the competition, the 27-year-old goalkeeper has told his agent Jorge Mendes to discuss with Real Madrid over a possible switch to Santiago Bernabeu in the next transfer window.
It should be recalled that the La Liga Champions have been monitoring the Spain international since 2015 but they were unsuccessful in their bids to lure him to the Spanish League.
Don Balon suggests the goalie is unhappy with United’s lack of European trophy and he is set to join Zinedine Zidane’s side where he stands a great chance of winning the Champions League trophy.
Since joining Manchester United from Atletico Madrid in 2011, he has won just one Premier League trophy and a single Europa League trophy unlike Real Madrid who have emerged UEFA Champions League champions in three of the last four seasons. United are yet to win any Champions League trophy since Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013 nor go beyond the quarter finals.
Real Madrid have been linked with a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois but they might end their interest in the Belgian now that their prime target is considering leaving Old Trafford.
Having crashed out of the Champions League and the Carabao Cup, Manchester United now have a single chance of winning a trophy this season in the FA Cup. They will tackle Brighton and Hove Albion in the quarter final of the competition on Saturday.
