It was the talk of the weekend - which, to be honest, shows you just how drab international weekends can be.

While England were putting six past San Marino and Wayne Rooney was pulling level with Bobby Charlton as the Three Lions all-time top scorer, Spain were on their way to a 2-0 win against Slovakia. 

That wasn't the big news however, no no no, instead it was Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas' perceived snub of Manchester United's David de Gea.

The moment when Fabregas' was substituted and greeted every member of the Spain bench except De Gea who was left hanging quickly went viral after the video was posted online.

Now the duo have moved to dismiss rumours of a bust-up by posing for a picture together which was then posted on Snapchat along with the caption: "all is fine guys".

The incident is the latest in a long line after a tough week for De Gea, who saw a transfer to Real Madrid fall through at the last moment after a summer of speculation. 

Tough times

The former Atletico Madrid man is yet to feature for Manchester United having been deemed to be not ready to play by boss Louis van Gaal - although he is likely to be reintegrated when the international break ends.

The 24-year-old was an unused substitute in Spain's win last night, and has been warned by boss Vicente del Bosque that his place in La Roja's Euro 2016 squad could be at risk if he doesn't get his place back.

Do you think De Gea will leave Manchester United in January?
