Man United fans desperate for club to keep De Gea

According to Don Balon, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is considering allowing David de Gea to leave the club at the end of the season in a swap deal for Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane.

With Mourinho such a big fan of Varane, it is thought that the Portuguese would swallow losing De Gea if he could sign the France international.

The United fans, however, are simply not interested in anything that has to do with their number one leaving the club.

De Gea turned 27 on Tuesday, and with United’s official Twitter account posting a tribute to the Spaniard, the club’s supporters were out in force to hail their hero.

De Gea, who is valued at £36m by transfermarkt.co.uk, has developed into one of the best goalkeepers in the world over the last couple of seasons, and it would be a major blow for the Red Devils if Real Madrid finally managed to poach him in next summer’s transfer window.

It seems inevitable that the Spaniard will eventually return to Madrid, but it is not something that the United supporters want to think about at this moment in time.
