De Gea will reject Real Madrid ... according to his agent

United's goalkeeper is happy in Manchester, apparently.

Jorge "Georgie" Mendes is, if we're being honest, the man who really runs football. Agent to the stars, éminence grise behind many a throne, and the man who handles the transfers of, among other people, Manchester United goalkeeper and great llama-like hope David de Gea.

So when words come out of his mouth, they do so for a reason. And when they are following words, in the following order ...

De Gea has one year left on his contract and I think that he will stay in Manchester. The player will decide, but he's happy there, at the moment.

... then it might be time to get a bit excited.

Or not. Because while everything Mendes says is aimed at somebody, the target here might well be Real Madrid, in a sort of hurry up and get your act together, lads, we haven't got all day. So, we'll see. Moderate excitement, perhaps. A muffled whoop.

Update: Or, as points out below, it might just mean he'll run down his contract and then amble off for nothing. And now tBB is thoroughly miserable.
