Talking David de Gea transfer rumors in the summer window can certainly be repetitive at best, overly tedious at worst, but when it involves Edurne Garcia, it’s a much more enjoyable process. The Spanish model and pop music star is De Gea’s significant other, and often finds herself being asked by media outlets about her boyfriend’s future whenever there is talk of the goalkeeper leaving Manchester United.

Garcia, who is better known by her stage name of simply Edurne, once said that the city of Manchester looks like the back of a refrigerator, and also once shut down an interview, designed to plug her music, when talk turned towards De Gea transfer rumors.


Instead of Real Madrid, it’s Paris Saint-Germain that is the club now linked to De Gea, with PSG having already made an offer. Edurne, in an interview with  El Hormiguero, denied claims that she has moved from Spain to Manchester, adding that the travel required in her career prohibits her from moving to northwest England.

“No, I don’t live in Manchester,” she said.

“It’s something that’s been said but how could I live in Manchester and work here? I’m making a series and working on an album so I travel a lot. There’s a lot of to-ing and fro-ing because David is still there, and that’s how it is.”

The Spanish songstress also said that she would support De Gea no matter where he decides to take his club career. De Gea’s future at Old Trafford remains uncertain, as he has just one season left on his current deal.

Talks of a long-term contract extension have stalled out.


“I’ve always said to him that I’ll support him no matter where he is or what he is doing,” Edurne responded when asked about the potential of the United No. 1 taking a big money deal to play in the Chinese Super league.

“The important thing is that he’s happy, that he’s inspired, that he’s comfortable in where he wants to be. I’ll support him to the death because that’s what couples do.”

When the obvious question, where will De Gea play next year, was put to her directly, Edurne played it coy and claimed ignorance.

“I don’t know,” she responded.
