Manchester United Playing Risky Game Over De Gea Saga
Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson once said he would not sell Real Madrid "a virus" let alone Cristiano Ronaldo but, as even he found out, when the Spanish giants come knocking they usually get what they want.
Ever since the end of last season United's Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea has been targeted as the replacement for long-serving Iker Casillas who has joined Porto after 16 years of service at the Bernabeu.
Yet with the Premier League season already under way, De Gea remains a United player, although he was not deemed in the right state of mind to play against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
United are not used to selling prime assets, simple as that, so the idea of Europe's most highly-regarded shot-stopper packing his gloves to play for a club they like to think they rival as the biggest in the world hurts.
