Skopje (Macedonia), Sep 8 (IANS) The transfer failure of David De Gea from Manchester United to Spanish club Real Madrid will not pose any problems for the Spaniard on his return to the English side, the goalkeeper’s club and international team-mate Juan Mata said on Tuesday.
De Gea is expected to return to Manchester United on Wednesday after the match between hosts Macedonia and Spain in the Euro 2016 qualifiers here on Tuesday, reports Efe.
De Gea was expected to move to Real Madrid after prolonged transfer negotiations throughout the transfer season but the deal unexpectedly fell through leaving both the parties to blame the other for the collapse.
“I’ve talked with him a lot,” Mata said on Tuesday.
“There have been hectic and stressful days but he is such a quiet, centred person, nothing changes,” he added.
Mata is convinced that the level of his fellow Spaniard will be the same because he will not face any problems in returning to United.
“David has been the best player in our team for the last two years. His saves have earned us a lot of points. I have no doubt this will be a very good year too,” he said.
