Stating the obvious: De Gea admits Manchester United interest

Spain U-21 ‘keeper was in Manchester yesterday for a medical with the Old Trafford club.

DAVID DE GEA has confirmed that he is on the brink of a move to Old Trafford.

The Atletico Madrid goalkeeper tweeted earlier that he has indeed been in contact with Manchester United.

The football world already had an inkling, particularly when the Spain U-21 star arrived at a Manchester hotel beneath a sheet yesterday evening.

The deal reported to be worth around £18million for the player expected to be completed soon.

The 20-year-old wrote on his official Twitter account: “I have been invited by Man U to see the club and the city with my family and to be given an offer.”

Here’s the Google translate version:

De Gea would be the third new arrival at Old Trafford this summer following the signings of Phil Jones and Ashley Young earlier this month, and is set to push United manager Alex Ferguson’s spending in June to around the £50million mark.
