United and Real both lose in De Gea debacle

ESPN FC’s Craig Burley is at odds as to what happens next for Manchester United now that David De Gea will remain at Old Trafford.

When there’s success, everybody takes credit. When faced with failure, we all point fingers and blame one another.

Make no mistake about it: the collapse of David De Gea’s move to Real Madrid is a failure. The fact that it could have been worse, that there might be a silver lining, doesn’t change that.

That’s why both clubs began the spin and blame games almost as soon as it emerged that the deal was dead.

There was talk of documents that couldn’t be opened — prompting endless hilarity on the Web, such as the assorted Photoshops of Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward — as well as cutting jibes from both sides about why the deal wasn’t concluded earlier.

Then, Tuesday morning, a 10-point statement landed from Real Madrid that, if you buy their version, puts the blame squarely on United. A few hours later, we got United’s response. Tit for tat.

Both sides say they have “evidence” of the other side’s bungling. Fact is, we really don’t know. But there are a few obvious questions.

Given that the transfer window in England did not close for another 18 hours, why did they not simply agree to do the deals separately?

In other words, transfer De Gea to Real Madrid for €40 million on Monday and then shift Keylor Navas to Old Trafford for €15 million the following day. It would have worked out exactly the same. Everybody would have gotten what they wanted. Both sides would have had enough time to complete everything.

The answer, obviously, is that there was a lack of trust between the parties involved. For that reason, it was a nonstarter. The fear of the other party suddenly pulling a fast one evidently ruled. That speaks to both the relationship between the two clubs and the general distrust in the folks brokering the deal. Negotiations aren’t just about driving hard bargains. They’re also about knowing when to trust and who to trust.

The other clear issue is why this transfer wasn’t completed sooner. Again, we have some level of spin from both sides. It has been pointed out that Real Madrid made a formal bid only on the final day. But that’s rather irrelevant. For a start, formal bids are usually made only when a side knows that bid will be accepted. While on the surface Real Madrid were saying they were in no hurry and United were insisting that it would take a Gigi Buffon-type transfer (£32 million) to get the deal done, the fact is there was plenty of talking going on involving intermediaries. This deal didn’t get moving until the end because both clubs were hoping to get the best possible price: low for Real Madrid, high for United. When that happens, it runs the risk of the door slamming shut.

There are no winners and losers here. Only losers.

Real Madrid made a brave face and were keen to give the impression that they’re not overly fussed. They’ll likely still get De Gea, whether on a free transfer in June or for a massively reduced fee in the next transfer window. Of course, that means Real manager Rafa Benitez won’t have De Gea around until January at the earliest. In a league that was decided by just a couple of points in the past few years, that could make all the difference. Plus, assuming De Gea plays in the Champions League for United, he will be Cup-tied, and Benitez won’t have him in European competition.

ESPN FC’s Stewart Robson give us his opinion on David de Gea’s transfer saga and also on why he should still play for Manchester United.

As for United, they too spun the tale that everything is fine. “The club is delighted that its fan-favorite double Player of the Year, David De Gea, remains a Manchester United player” is what they tacked on to the end of their club statement. So delighted, in fact, that a few hours earlier they completed all the paperwork to sell him.

The real damage was done when United failed to extend De Gea’s deal and let it run down to this point. Again, there’s been plenty of spin from all sides on just how it happened. But what’s fairly obvious is that the club failed to capitalize the leverage they had over De Gea’s agent, Jorge Mendes. This was especially true last summer when they were dealing with him on an almost daily basis to secure the likes of Radamel Falcao and Angel Di Maria. You’d have thought at a time when they were throwing so much business his way they might have figured out a way to get some help on De Gea’s contract.

That much is on Woodward, the man charged with actually running United’s transfers. To be fair to him, the deal he actually struck for De Gea was, in my opinion, a pretty good one: €25 million plus a serviceable goalkeeper like Navas is a good deal for a player nine months from free agency, especially when there’s plenty of tension between him and the manager.

If Woodward were only able to get that deal by gambling and cutting it so close, well — draw your own conclusions.

United’s challenge now is to repair the relationship with De Gea quickly, and that shouldn’t be too difficult. The guy is a professional and knows it’s in his interest to act professionally. Equally, manager Louis van Gaal knows — or should know — that it’s best for the club to bury the hatchet until January or whenever De Gea leaves.

Still, the conclusion is obvious. Both clubs are worse off today, and serious questions must be asked internally over the way these deals were conducted.
