The "hot rumour" for today is the news "bomb" dropped by Spanish radio "Onda Cero" ( a bit known for its love of gaining attention) that English Club MANCHESTER UNITED had shut a deal of transfer with ATLETICO DE MADRID for young goalkeeping talent DAVID DE GEA. The deal was even given a number, 20M€ &the De Gea "representative" Jorge Mendes ( Ronaldo, Mourinho, Di Maria, Calvalho...& many more) was in Manchester for the Champions League match against Chelsea.

The players father has come out to comment that nothing is true; I would expect this as the season is not as yet finished. The Club Atletico de Madrid has gone public saying that the story is totally false; I would expect this as the Directives are already unfire & the possible fanbase backlash would be considerable.
I normally don´t give much credit to the 99% "bullshit" that flies out from the Spanish Football machine, don´t this one makes me stop & take note. Manchester United has been expressing their real interest since last year & this rumour has never gone away. Lastly, when a person & Football representative like "Jorge Mendes" is in the picture you know that there is llittle "bullshit" to be thrown about as business is business.
Stay tuned folks, this particular news piece is worth the attention.
