Manchester United Fans React On Twitter To Transfer Swap Rumours


Half way through the January transfer window and Manchester United have added to their squad by bringing in Spanish international Goalkeeper, Victor Valdes, 33, on a free transfer having left Spanish Giants Barcalona.

But the real talk of late in the gossip columns are of the current United stopper David De Gea, and an audacious swoop whatever way you look at from Real Madrid, involving Gareth Bale moving in the opposite direction and many millions of pounds/euros involved.

The question is though, would it be a good move if such a rumour actually materialised? Now Gareth Bale is no doubt a top footballer, and just as significantly, he is a ‘Galactico’, playing at the top club in the world right now. But would the arrival of a player of such quality be worth if it meant United would lose arguably the best goalkeeper in the Premiership?

De Gea is still very young for a goalkeeper at 23, and as things stand, he is destined to be a world class footballer for probably quite a while.

If United were to sell, it would definitely be some achievement by the club to replace him with a player of similar quality with the same longevity.

Would be a risky move… although a Gareth Bale may go some way in softening the blow.
