It continues to be a very exciting summer at Manchester United, with plenty of topics to discuss. What offseason, right?

So let’s take a spin through the latest news and notes items making the rounds on the internet today.

United goalkeeper David de Gea, just hours after agreeing to an extension to stay at the club for five more years, had a really rough game today in the World Cup group stage. Spain’s 3-3 draw with Portugal saw De Gea gift a goal to Cristiano Ronaldo just before half time. It was a glaring mistake that just can’t happen at this level.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho defended his #1.


“It’s my boy, it hurts me to say but he knows it’s a bad mistake,’ Mourinho said while doing his World Cup punditry work for Russia Today. (transcript Daily Mail)

“It’s a mistake he doesn’t make with us, United – player of the season, fantastic performances. But that happens to the best. The good thing with the best is that in the next match he will be there – not afraid, confident to go & ready to help his team. It is a goal with David’s face.”

So how do you think supporters of United’s arch-rival Liverpool reacted to De Gea’s brutal moment and awful game today? Yes, with schadenfreude. For LFC fans this was a chance to get revenge for United supporters’ schadenfreude during the UCL Final when Loris Karius turned in a stinker of an outing.

The Daily Mirror has chronicled the whole thing.

-The agent of Anthony Martial has made it be known publicly- his client wants out. However, United are not keen to sell him. How will all this play out? Well, Old Trafford would rather not me move, if indeed he must transfer, to a league rival. They would much rather send the Frenchman to Serie A or La Liga, reportedly.

The Manchester Evening News reports: “Real Madrid or Juventus over a move to either Chelsea or Tottenham who are both said to be interested in the 22-year-old.”
