David de Gea will be welcomed back with respect from the Manchester United faithful when he returns to Old Trafford, according to Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta. 

As reported by the London Evening Standard, the Blues ace has insisted that he's previously experienced the affection the Red Devils fans have for the shot-stopper, and believes they will continue to respect him. 

De Gea, of course, looked set to complete a move away from Old Trafford last Monday, however his transfer to Real Madrid broke down late on in the night, meaning he now looks set to stay on in Manchester for the foreseeable future.

Of course, with the Spaniard having just one year remaining on his contract, he could yet depart the club on a free transfer at the end of the campaign. 

Azpilicueta, who is currently alongside the 'keeper with the Spanish national side, certainly believes he will get the backing from United supporters despite the failed move. 

Azpilicueta speaks out 

"As a rival, I've experienced the affection the United fans have for De Gea," Azpilicueta told reporters. "They always respect him and they will continue to do so.

"He is very loved there, and the United fans will welcome him with respect."

He's right 

Ok, it's common knowledge that De Gea was seemingly determined to secure a move to the Bernabeu in the transfer window, but Manchester United fans will no doubt give the player their full backing when he reclaims his place in the side. 

At the end of the day, the Spaniard has been the club's standout players for the past two years, and he could yet have an integral role to play as the club go in search of success on both the domestic and European scene this season. United fans will only know that too well and will no doubt help the player thrive at the Theatre of Dreams once again.
