Manchester United fans have made it very clear who they'd rather between Gareth Bale and David De Gea

The result was definitely definitive.

De Gea's future has been in doubt since the signing of Victor Valdes.

THE RECENT TALK of Gareth Bale moving from Real Madrid to Manchester United with David De Gea doesn’t look to have gone down well with United fans, according to a new poll.

Bale has come in for criticism from Real Madrid fans recently, sparking talk of him being shown the exit door at the Bernabeu while David De Gea once again put in a top class performance at Loftus Road on Saturday.

De Gea has 18 months left on his contract and United fans have made it clear that they would rather he signed a new one than acquire the world’s most expensive player in his place.

The Manchester United Supporters’ Trust (MUST) last night asked United fans by means of a Facebook poll, which player they would prefer.

The response was certainly definitive with MUST reporting that “over 99 percent” of over 600 fans who responded would rather United kept De Gea.

“With this in mind it signals the challenge Ed Woodward and the Glazers have to get Manchester United’s most popular player signed up on a new contract, before Real Madrid attempt to prise him away,” said a MUST spokesperson.

Louis van Gaal remains adamant he won’t change his formation because fans ask for it
