Manchester United’s number one jersey looks to be up for grabs this summer, but the club may have been handed a boost on that front, and David de Gea could yet stay at the club because of these quotes from Iker Casillas.
Casillas has confessed his happiness in Madrid, and admitted that he will stay at the club next season:
“I’m staying with Real Madrid next season. I don’t see myself leaving the club before the season starts.” Casillas said.
Now this doesn’t rule out De Gea moving to Real Madrid entirely, but it does narrow down the chance of that move happening significantly.
Real already have Iker Casillas and Keylor Navas on their books, and David de Gea would obviously want to be first choice if he did move there and that isn’t anywhere close to being guaranteed.
This certainly does give us a better chance of keeping the 24-year old for at least one more season, which is obviously a good thing.
If De Gea does leave, who would you replace him with? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
