Published Add your comment

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea will make an announcement over his future next week, according to the Sun.

The Spanish international is out of contract at Old Trafford next year and has so far refused to sign a new deal amidst interest from Real Madrid.

Reports in Spain say he has already agreed to a move, despite the offer of £250,000-a-week to stay with Manchester United. The Sun say that De Gea is still contemplating what to do and is yet to make his mind up, despite the fact the Real Madrid are only said to have offered him £130k-a-week to make the move.

The paper adds that De Gea and Manchester United will make an announcement next week, and that the former Atletico Madrid man is keen on a switch to the Bernabeu. 

Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal admitted after Manchester United's final home game of the season, a 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Sunday, that the decision over whether De Gea, who was named the club's player of the year earlier this week, is out of his hands.

The Dutch boss said: "He is Spanish and his girlfriend is Spanish and he can go to another great club, so it is difficult for him to decide.

"David De Gea shall not leave us so easily because we are a great club and he wants to participate. He is still behind Casillas but now a Spanish club is coming."

Paul Scholes: No surprise Liverpool rejected Manchester United's Sterling approach

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has admitted that he wasn't surprised Liverpool knocked the Red Devils back in their attempts to move for England international Raheem Sterling.

In his column for the Independent, the club's former midfielder told how former teammate Gabriel Heinze was blocked from completing a move to Merseyside when he was plying his trade for United.

Sterling, of course, has been the subject of much debate in recent time after he rejected a new five-year deal worth £100,000-a-week with the club.

"I wasn’t surprised to see Liverpool knock back United’s inquiry, as reported, about Raheem Sterling. My view on Sterling has not changed. He is a good player but Liverpool looks like the best place to develop his talent. There is still a lot of room for improvement."

James Wilson's girlfriend hits back at offensive tweet

The girlfriend of Manchester United striker James Wilson, Frankie Barwell, has responded in style to a cruel and unnecessary tweet from an Australian sports betting website.

Oddschecker Au deleted the offending tweet mocking her appearance after a barrage of furious responses from Twitter users - not just Manchester United fans, either - but Frankie had her say with a brilliant Instagram post.

She posted a photo of herself, alongside the caption: “Remember, people only rain on your parade because they’re jealous of your sun and tired of their shade.”
