Louis van Gaal has admitted Real Madrid’s pursuit of David de Gea is causing tension between the Spaniard and Manchester United.
United have been in a standoff with the Spanish giants all summer, demanding defender Sergio Ramos in return for letting De Gea leave Old Trafford – a prospect which is looking increasingly unlikely.
Van Gaal has praised De Gea’s attitude on two occasions this summer, but the Dutchman hinted that all was not well with the goalkeeper after the defeat to PSG.
“We have a situation that is not favourable for David de Gea, neither for us and neither for the club that, maybe, he wants to go,” Van Gaal said. When asked what the best solution was for all parties,”We have to wait and see. It is the same question as your predecessor.”
