Manchester United fans react to David De Gea reports

It’s not often Manchester United fans will have to worry about seeing their best players depart amidst rumours and reports, considering both the size and the spending power of the Red Devils.

Still, when Real Madrid come calling, it’s a different matter entirely. Both David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo have previously left Old Trafford to join Los Blancos, so it’s fair to say the Champions League holders have a precedent in cherry-picking the club’s best talents.

So reports linking the Spaniards with a move for David De Gea once more aren’t likely to come as much of a surprise. The stopper infamously saw a move back to the Spanish capital breakdown as a result of a faulty fax machine in 2015 and, while he has since penned a new deal at the Theatre of Dreams, suggestions Real could make another move have never really gone away.

The Sun claim Madrid are ready to offer what would be a world-record £60m offer the ‘keeper, far eclipsing the current record of £32m on a stopper, in a deal that saw the legendary Gianluigi Buffon move from Parma to Juventus.

With that in mind, here’s a look at how Twitter reacted.
