The David De Gea saga continues to drag on.

From being certain that he would be going to Real Madrid this summer, I`m holding out some hope that the Spaniard will be staying.

With the two clubs not having, so we believed, seriously discussed a transfer, there could be a few funny looks and cutting remarks early next week.

You see, if the press are correct, De Gea said goodbye to his team-mates before he went on holiday, probably assuming that would be the last time he`d be congregating with them.

However, with no further movement on the proposed move, Louis van Gaal has told the 24-year-old that he is expected to report for pre-season training on Monday.

Comments such as:-

“What are you doing here?”

“Thought you were leaving”

And

“What`s the matter, did they change their minds?”

Could all be uttered with wry smiles!
