David de Gea’s girlfriend has seemingly confirmed that her partner will be moving to Real Madrid, the Daily Mirror report.
Edurne Garcia had just been taking part in an interview when she was heard off-microphone dropping the hint that the 24-year-old will be moving back to the Spanish capital (via Mirror).
“Now, when he is in Madrid everything will be much easier,” she allegedly claimed.
Garcia had already made herself incredibly unpopular with United fans after she suggested that the city was: “uglier than the back of a fridge,” (via Mirror). These latest comments are unlikely to do much to endear her to the Old Trafford faithful.
While her comments seem to confirm his exit, she does not specify when that departure will be. The Mirror report that he is set to move to the Bernabeu, and if it is not this summer, it will be next year when his contract has expired.
Nevertheless, the negativity coming from one of the people closest to him will ensure that there is little chance of United being able to convince the stopper to extend his deal, and may impact on his form should he remain in England for another year.
