SPANISH FOOTBALL | SPORTS: ATLETICO MADRID REACTS TO MANCHESTER UNITED "OFFER" FOR DAVID DE GEA

ATLETICO MADRID REACTS TO MANCHESTER UNITED "OFFER" FOR DAVID DE GEA

ATLETICO DE MADRID Directives, fans & Spanish Football experts all agree that 19 year old Goalkeeper DAVID DE GEA is destined to be a World class player & Spain´s next goalie after Casillas gives way. In fact, De Gea is already a vital piece of the Spanish U-21 Squad.

Readers may be surprised to learn that the current salary of David De Gea at Atletico de Madrid is “only” 400.000€ / season. You can now understand the attraction of the Manchester United sirens from the player. Atletico has reacted to the “supposed” Manchester United offer of 18M€ by offering David e Gea a pay rise to the figure of 1.1M€.

I still think it is “peanuts” taking into account his youth, class & certain destiny. However, I also question the “timely” appearance of the Manchester United “threat” & how that has lead to a salary pay raise offer days after the news flash. Perhaps Atletico is reacting to fans pressure & is at least attempting to show that the Clubs is reacting to keep the player although there is an agreement with Man Utd. Who knows!


Football is full of unknowns, surprises & lots of economic interests all interacting just like atoms & electrons that make the future difficult to predict. Will De Gea stay? Will he leave? I am certain this will not be the last post that I hang up on Spanish Football Sports writing about De Gea.
