Real Madrid might have failed to sign Manchester United’s star goalkeeper, David De Gea due to delayed signing off paperwork, and both camps pointing accusing fingers at each other.
When Guillem Balagué, a Spanish football journalist and pundit tweeted that the deal was not happening, Twitter went afire.
The documents did not arrive on time!!!!!! Presentation was ready. All agreed. But as it stands de Gea stays at MUFC!!

Now we are hearing that United did send the documents on time but in a format that couldn't be opened at the LFP. Windows 95?
