Manchester United’s latest signing David de Gea bid farewell to his lifetime club Atlético Madrid at the Vicente Calderón on Wednesday evening. The keeper is off to the Premier league after having signed a five-year deal with the Red Devils. Atleti are set to receive at least €20 million for the sale of their young star.
David de Gea is in England undergoing a medical before he can complete his move to Manchester United. The goalkeeper had said he would leave it until after the European U21 Championships before deciding his future. After having won the tournament with Spain on Saturday, it seems the 20-year-old has wasted no time in jetting to Manchester to apply the finishing touches to his deal.
Atlético goalkeeper David de Gea has denied he has signed with Manchester United, contrary to reports claiming the 20-year-old’s transfer is a done deal. Even United manager Sir Alex Ferguson had confirmed the transfer on Tuesday, but the ‘keeper issued a statement through his attorney, José Bouzas Aragón, on Wednesday dismissing that it was a done deal.
Diego Forlan has revealed that he wants to stay at Atlético next season, despite reports linking him with a move back to England. Forlan, 31, is being lauded as one of the best players at the World Cup this summer, scoring four goals for Uruguay on the way to their semi-final clash with the Netherlands
