Twist in United keeper deal

Athletico Madrid goalkeeper David De Gea says he has not agreed a deal with Manchester United, despite reports by the Daily Mail to the contrary.

The 20-year-old had reportedly signed a deal with the 18-time league champions worth £22 million.

But the Spanish keeper claims the link is completely false.

"There is nothing, it is all lies," he told a press conference.

"I know nothing about offers from any team, whether it is other clubs or a renewal from Atletico.

"I have given my all to this team since I have been here, and that will continue today and tomorrow, I will always fight for this team," he said.


United have been linked with the £22 million rated keeper for some week now, and reports emerged this week that the goalkeeper would be moving to Old Trafford this summer.

With Edwin Van Der Sar set to be leaving Old Trafford this summer, United are keen to bring in a replacement, and Sir Alex Ferguson, although he refused to discuss De Gea at a recent press conference, is said to be keen on the Madrid stopper.

As well as De Gea, United have been linked with Pepe Reina, Maarten Stekelenburg and Manuel Neuer as they look to replace their Dutch stalwart.
