An article in The Times has revealed all the details on David de Gea’s new Manchester United contract, but there’s one aspect of it that fans just aren’t buying.
Regardless of the circumstances, it’s always good news when an immensely talent player puts pen to paper on a new deal with your club.
Yes, Manchester United’s Spanish shot-stopper has declined significantly in the last 18 months, but on his day he is still up there with the very best, and some fans were even getting emotional when his new deal was announced this week.
As more details emerge however, such as the fact that he will earn roughly £375,000 a week, fans have been left baffled by one thing.
According to the report, De Gea was impressed by the Red Devils’ “ambition and direction”.
Needless to say after several years of disappointment following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, fans are calling fake news on this one.
Take a look at some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
