Madrid - United held up deal

United and Madrid had agreed a deal worth £29million for the sale of De Gea to the Bernabeu, with Keylor Navas heading in the other direction.
But that deal fell through after the requisite paperwork was not submitted before the Spanish deadline of 11pm on Monday.
United claimed Madrid were the ones to blame for the collapse of the deal, but the Spanish giants issued a statement on Tuesday condemning the actions of the Old Trafford club.
“Real Madrid has done everything necessary, and at all times, to implement these two transfers,” said Madrid in a lengthy 10-point statement published on their website on Tuesday afternoon.
