Ramos has favourited just seven tweets since joining the social media site, so United fans are sure to be pessimistic over their No.1’s Old Trafford future.
De Gea is expected to be sold to Real Madrid for a fee of £24.5m in the coming days, and looks to be a replacement to Iker Casillas – who signed for FC Porto last month.
He has cemented himself as one of the finest goalkeepers in Europe, and is now looking to return to his home country after four years in Manchester.
Speculation will soon turn to whether new signing Sergio Romero will become United’s first-choice in between the posts, or if Louis van Gaal will secure the signature of another goalkeeper this summer – with Ajax’s Jasper Cillessen linked.
