De Gea Named In United’s CL Squad

share on:

At least he’s not being thrown to the curb. Despite his move to Madrid falling through, De Gea has been named in United champions league squad.

De Gea was set to join Madrid on Monday, with United agreeing to £29 million plus Keylor Navas for the Spanish shot stopper, but the deal fell through at the last minute.

Both clubs have issued statements blaming each other for the deal falling through. Louis Van Gaal has moved on though, naming De Gea in his squad for the champions league.

Valdes was dropped, with Romero and Johnston competing with De Gea. Martial and Wilson will compete with Rooney, and Mata also made the cut.
