Man Utd’s Juan Mata Not Expecting Failed Real Madrid Move To Change De Gea

Reports are out claiming that Juan Mata insists David De Gea will continue on as normal despite missing out on a summer move to Real Madrid.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper was set to land a £29million transfer from Manchester United to Madrid last Monday but the necessary paperwork was not submitted on time.

De Gea was banking on a return to his home city but will now have to spend at least the first half of the season with the Red Devils – something Mata believes he will do without complaint.

Mata said: “I’ve talked with him a lot. There have been hectic and stressful days but he is such a quiet, centred person, nothing changes.

“The last two years David has been the best player in our team. His saves have earned us a lot of points. I have no doubt this will be a very good year, too.

“I don’t think there’ll be a problem with the club, the coach or the fans. That’s what I perceive. The fans love him very much, he’s highly regarded by the club and the coach.

“I think it will be the same. (Ander) Herrera and I will continue saving on petrol.”
