Manchester United's number one seems increasing likely to join the Spanish top flight team Real Madrid in the coming days. Doubt has flooded the minds of fans for the last few months with speculation of a transfer since the beginning of the year.
De Gea and all the staff at Manchester have been very tight lipped about the situation up until Saturday's clash with Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs.
It seems the final nail in the coffin for fans comes from the dubious team selection for Saturday's game with new singing Sergio Romero starting in the number one role, with a troubled De Gea and out of favor Victor Valdes watching from the stands.

The main man himself Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal was unusually open in the post match interview stating this about his star goalkeeper.
He said according to Reuters: "He has been our best player for two years chosen by the fans so we cannot let him go easily. We have to pay a lot of money for all the players we want and we want to sell at the same level.
"We want to keep him, of course. As a keeper, you need the highest concentration for 90 minutes and it's difficult for David to do that in his current situation. We saw that in the tour matches. When the situation is cleared after 1 September, we'll look again."
De Gea has won Manchester United player of the year two years running as chosen by the players and the fans.
Accepting the award, the Spaniard stated according to the Mirror 'I want to say thank you to my teammates, they have been fantastic this season and I think we have a very good dressing room. I love them.'
