    I really hope De Gea leaves for Real Madrid soon! Without him United would be near Arsenal in the PL table.

    Reports say he is going to sign a new deal

    Reports can go to hell for all I care. Nothing is done until its done in football.

    I still hope that Real pay 70-90m for him and get him after the WC. He has only a year left on his contract I think, United would be fools to deny such an offer.

    Generally I wouldn’t give notice to reports but The Times said he will sign a new deal.

    He signed a 4+1 year deal with us in summer of 2015 so he has 2 years left on his deal this summer. Courtois I think has a year left and has already talked about leaving for Spain. Given the choice courtois would be cheaper, younger and more attainable.

    His point was that ferguson is probably the best manager. Which is true. At least since the 90s.

    They’ve already turned on Sánchez who lost the ball 38 times in their last game, hardly surprising with a fickle plastic fanbase.

    they'll replace him with someone similar. Remains to be seen if he can save ManUre as many times.

    Replacing De Gea with someone similar will be very very difficult. De Gea is possibly the best GK right now.

    Wish we were more like Arsenal, getting the best out of all of our players.

    Don't even start on the fickle fanbase part.

    They have a knack for acquiring good goalkeepers.

    That spell after Schmeichel was disastrous; Bosnich, Taibi, Barthez (I liked him), Howard and Carroll. Coincided with Sir Alex's little hangover post-2002. Didn't get it right until Van der Sar from Fulham in 2005 which led to the first title in 3 seasons along with arguably one of the best era's of the club (Ronaldo era). Makes you realise how important it is to have a dependable goalkeeper.

    Would have loved to have got this guy after Schmeichel. But we have been fortunate to have some of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League era for sure.

  17. Van der Sar was amazing for you, had mates that told me he was too old for you when he went, but even at Fulham he looked fantastic. Told them he would be great at old trafford, wished I had been wrong tho!

    Frankly I think Madrid are looking at other keepers. DDG will easily cost 100m and he is already 27. It’s easier for Real to get someone like donarumma who is younger and cheaper.

    27 is young for a GK. They'd get at least 8 years out of him.
     
  20. £100m? Yeah, ok then.
