Uncertainty surrounds David de Gea deal as Real Madrid appeal for transfer to be completed

Back on?

After a summer of uncertainty, it’s only right that the David de Gea saga ends in such dramatic fashion.

Early on Monday it appeared the deal was sealed – only for stories to break that paperwork had not been completed in time.

But news that the transfer was dead has been swiftly followed with yet another twist. Reports from Spain are suggesting that the relevant paperwork was sent before the deadline had passed and that Real Madrid will appeal to push the transfer through.

United also seem keen to finalise the deal, with the club indicating that the fax was sent before the deadline.

It seems that this story is still not finished.
