Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has advised David de Gea to give his all for Manchester United, after his move to Real Madrid fell through at the last minute.

De Gea's move to the Bernabeu crashed and burned after the paperwork was filed late and the goalkeeper was visibly upset that his dream move had collapsed when arriving at the national team base.

The 24-year-old will remain at the Red Devils until at least January and Ramos has said the United stopper must continue the high standards he has set himself in the last two years at Old Trafford.

As per Marca, he said: "I've not spoken with De Gea and I don't know what his feelings on this situation are, but life goes on. There are more important things in life than this.

What he needs to do now is carry on working hard to maintain the standards that he has set for himself in recent years.

He has had a difficult summer because a decision has been made on his future, and that of his family. These are things that we all go through at one time or another, but you just have to get on with it and, wherever you are playing, give your very best".


In other news, according to Marca, the Spaniard has not ruled out signing a new deal at Old Trafford after it was revealed the €2.3 million-per-season offer was still on the table.

De Gea still has the option to join Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer, but United will be trying their best to tie the keeper down to a new deal, after a statement yesterday expressed their delight at keeping hold of their two-time player of the year.


And finally, a clause in the deal for new United forward Anthony Martial has been revealed.

The French forward move to Old Trafford in a £36 million deal, that could rise to an eye-watering £58m.

According to BBC Sport, a clause in the deal states the Red Devils will have to fork out more money to Monaco if Martial scoops the Ballon d'Or.
