Crisis continues at Old Trafford as player/manager relationship breaks down.
Louis van Gaal is surely set to be under the spotlight again at Manchester United after reports that he and star player David de Gea are not on speaking terms, according to CaughtOffside.
Manchester United transfer rumours
Spanish sources claim that van Gaal and de Gea have not spoken to each other for months, while the goalkeeper is also growing increasingly displeased with the Dutchman’s public criticism of his performances.
De Gea has been linked with a big move to Real Madrid on a number of occasions after some superb displays in the Premier League this season, but van Gaal has shown he is not entirely satisfied with his form.
“De Gea is not giving us points because he is our goalkeeper. You obligation is to catch balls. If anyone thinks he is an exception for it, sorry, wrong,” the Red Devils boss is quoted as saying.
The player’s agent Jorge Mendes has reportedly been in touch with Real over a possible move to the Bernabeu.
