Manchester United have rejected claims from Real Madrid president Florentino Perez that they are to blame for the failed transfer of goalkeeper David de Gea.

As reported by the Telegraph, a Red Devils spokesman suggests that the Old Trafford outfit have the backing of the FA that they submitted the documents in time to allow De Gea to complete a move to Real Madrid on the Spanish deadline day. 

De Gea, of course, looked all but set to complete the move to the Bernabeu, however the deal appeared to collapse late on, which has led to both clubs make a number of claims in the aftermath.

And, with Perez claiming United's ‘inexperience’ in the transfer window scuppered the deal, the Red Devils have hit back with another statement of their own this afternoon. 

A Manchester United spokesman stated: “The facts speak for themselves. The FA are prepared to back our case that documents were in on time.

“We all like to blame others but if you let one slip through your fingers into the back of the net, then ultimately the culpability is yours."

Real mistake 

Let's be honest, the rumours surrounding the future of De Gea have rumbled on for so long now that the majority are starting to lose interest in the saga. 

At the end of the day, if Real really wanted to secure the player's services in this window, then surely they would have attempted to swoop earlier on in the window...why leave it to the last day?It just doesn't make sense.

In truth, United should forget about the episode and concentrate on getting De Gea - one of the best 'keepers in world football - back out on the pitch sooner rather than later.
