The David de Gea to Real Madrid saga looks to be no closer to an outcome after tenacious Spanish news site Cuatro gave him the old Harry Redknapp treatment to ask him what he is up to this week.
Tracking the Spain international down at 2am on Sunday morning, Cuatro revealed that through a conversation with de Gea and his girlfriend Edurne, he will be returning to Old Trafford this week to get pre-season preparations underway for the new season.
Last week, the 24-year-old sent rumours into overdrive after he was spotted returning to Madrid just a week before the squad were due to report back to their Carrington training complex.
And though he neither confirmed nor denied whether he will be joining Real Madrid this summer, he did state that he would be linking back up with his current employers.
When asked if he is joining the La Liga big guns, he replied: “Real Madrid? I have to return to Manchester for pre-season.”
Cuatro also asked De Gea’s girlfriend Edurne “Don’t you want David here?” to which she responded “The truth is, it’s very late”.
