Throughout the summer window, the most dragged out transfer saga was that of Manchester United’s David De Gea going to Real Madrid.
On the Spanish deadline day, the two clubs agreed a fee and a player swap to complete the deal but, due to a paperwork error, on Madrid’s side, the De Gea transfer fell through.
Following this, people were unsure of how the Spanish keeper would react to the disappointment but, he’s been a true professional, and came straight back into Manchester United’s starting eleven.
De Gea also signed a new contract at Old Trafford to ensure that the Red Devil’s wouldn’t lose him on a free, to Los Blancos, in the summer.
The Manchester United keeper is currently away on international duty and, in an interview with Canal Plus, he had this to say about his Real Madrid transfer embargo.
“I am a guy who likes to put the bad things and difficult times behind me,”
“I had a lot of tough times and I know what it is. We must move forward, working equally and always strong.”
“It’s a learning process that gives football hard moments but that make you mature and grow. These are things that you learn in the world of football. You have to keep working and try to improve in every training session.”
Spain will host Luxembourg and travel to Ukraine during this international break.
