    full MUFC statement re De Gea

    David De Gea Transfer

    Manchester United notes Real Madrid’s statement on the attempt to sign David De Gea and sell Navas to Manchester United. The Club feels compelled to provide some clarification with the following facts.

    · Manchester United did not seek contact from Real Madrid for the sale of David. David is a key member of our squad and the Club’s preference was not to sell.

    · No offer was received for David until yesterday.

    · At lunchtime yesterday, Real Madrid made its first offer to buy David. A deal was agreed between the clubs, which included Navas being transferred to Old Trafford. The deals were dependent on each other.

    · In the last several hours of the process, with Navas at the Real Madrid training ground, Real Madrid were controlling the documentation processes of David, Navas and Real Madrid. Manchester United was in control only of the documentation of Manchester United.

    · Manchester United sent transfer documents for both players to Real Madrid at 2042 BST. David’s documentation was returned by Real Madrid to Manchester United without the signatory page at 2232 BST.

    · At 2240 BST, minutes before the deadline, major changes to the documentation came through to Manchester United which immediately put the deals at risk.

    · Only at 2255 BST were the documents that are needed to cancel David’s contract received by Manchester United from Real Madrid.

    · At this point Navas’ documentation was still not returned by Real Madrid.

    · At 2258 BST, the transfer agreement was sent back by Manchester United, uploaded onto TMS and accepted – all before the deadline.

    · It is our understanding that the deals couldn’t happen because:

    o Real Madrid didn’t upload David’s documents onto TMS in time (Manchester United did)
    o Real Madrid didn’t upload David’s documents to the Spanish league in time, per reports it seems some 28 minutes after the deadline

    · The fact that Manchester United filed the papers on time was acknowledged by the Football Association, who offered to support that claim in any discussions with FIFA. The Club offered this assistance, as well as its own timestamped documents to Real Madrid but they have chosen not to go down this route.

    . Denis Law was better than Paco Gento.

    Manchester United acts appropriately and efficiently in its transfer dealings. The Club is delighted that its fan-favourite double Player of the Year, David de Gea, remains a Manchester United player.

    Pretty definitive from the club, love the arrogance of the last paragraph.

    All the chatter about Real taking this to UEFA and then,

    "The fact that Manchester United filed the papers on time was acknowledged by the Football Association, who offered to support that claim in any discussions with FIFA. The Club offered this assistance, as well as its own timestamped documents to Real Madrid but they have chosen not to go down this route."

    Seems this is totally 100% on Real. They assumed United would cave as 99% of teams do and they bottled it.

        Fair play.

        They don't like it up 'em.

          'it's fan favourite double player of the year' has to be the smuggest phrase in any official club statement, ever.

          And fair play to them for saying it. Who had a madrid rant on here recently ? (corvo/twister/one of the better spoken potato munchers at least) - bet they love this...
          Keep Phil Jones fit, win quadruple. Simple.

            · At 2240 BST, minutes before the deadline, major changes to the documentation came through to Manchester United which immediately put the deals at risk.

            They were playing a twats game right up until the end. The aim was to push things so far down the road, they could pressurise United into closing the deal and drawing a line under the whole thing.

            I reckon De Gea will wonder how much Madrid actually want him. They didn't want to pay anything like his value and have played with his emotions in order to get him on the cheap.
            If Navas has a great season for Madrid, De Gea might think twice about going there next summer.

              Nice response from United and I like the bit about fans favourite David De Gea who at this moment is probably also delighted at the prospect of remaining a United player.

                I like the Denis Law mention. Slipped in nicely Andy.

                  I never felt like DeGea was gonna leave United but you can never be so confident in football.

                  Madrid never wanted to sign DeGea this window. When they want a player they go and make it happen whatever the price. If DeGea was like Pedro he would of just signed for a differently club after being messed about but clearly he is only going Madrid cause of his woman.

                  It's just like when Ronaldo stayed for that extra year, that kind of World Class ability is more important then the money. The two week break works in United favour. If he started vs Swansea we win that football match. Lot of people dnt realise how important his kicking out from the back is, his decision making in when to go long and short. It's the biggest and most important thing we did this summer
