David de Gea's form at Manchester United has been rather ridiculous this season. The shot-stopper has been without a doubt the club's best player under the guidance of Louis van Gaal, so it's not entirely surprising that many fans and pundits alike now believe he should be Spain's No.1 on a permanent basis.
Of course, at this present time, the former Atletico Madrid man is with the national side as they look ahead to a friendly clash with Holland, as they look to put the demons of their humiliating 5-1 defeat to the Dutch at this past summer's World Cup to bed.
And De Gea may well get the nod between the sticks, but things haven't all been going his own way in training.
In fact, De Gea was on the wrong end of a rather stunning free-kick from Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.
Ramos, who is a key man for club and country, may well be behind the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in the pecking order for dead-ball situations at the Bernabeu, but perhaps Vicente del Bosque will hand him the duties on the international scene.
Ultimately De Gea, who has made a number of incredible saves for Manchester United throughout the course of the campaign, was well beaten as Ramos smashed the ball into the top corner of the goal.
Don't join him
Of course Ramos will be hoping to see De Gea join him at the Bernabeu sooner rather than later. After all the Manchester United ace has been linked with a move to Real for some time now, but the Red Devils No.1 should stick around in England for a little while longer yet.
De Gea, despite managerial changes at Old Trafford, has gone from strength-to-strength in recent season, and will only continue to improve on English soil.
And with United now in with a great chance of securing Champions League football for next season, the 'keeper has a great chance to secure success at the club for the long term. He shouldn't jump ship yet.
