Now that the transfer window has closed across most of Europe, reports coming out of Spain have suggested that the deal to take David De Gea to Real Madrid has fallen through.
The reason behind this is reportedly because the paperwork wasn’t sent to the Spanish giants on time and now the shot stopper is to remain at Old Trafford until the new year at least.
Many are attributing this to Ed Woodward, who has been roundly receiving praise on social media channels. It’s fair to say United fans are pleased, and we’ve captured some of their best reactions below…

Of course, all of this means United will lose De Gea on a free transfer next summer…
