Barca appeals to de Gea, says girlfriend

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea would be tempted by a potential move to Barcelona, according to his girlfriend.

The Spanish shot-stopper is reported to be a target for the La Liga leaders after their current first-choice goalkeeper, Victor Valdes, announced his intention to leave Camp Nou.

And, despite insisting that the 22-year-old is ‘very happy’ at Old Trafford, de Gea’s girlfriend Edurne Garcia observed that the Spaniard would welcome a return to his homeland, with Barcelona an especially appealing prospect.

“David is very happy at Manchester United but of course he would like to return to Spain and if it’s Barca it gets even better,” she told Spanish television.

De Gea has endured a mixed campaign for the Red Devils this season, being regularly rotated by manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

He was also criticised for his display against Tottenham on January 20, when his weak punch allowed Spurs to score a late equaliser, while he similarly flapped at a Steven Gerrard shot to allow Daniel Sturridge to score at Old Trafford earlier in January.

Thibaut Courtois, on loan from Chelsea at Atletico Madrid, and Liverpool’s Pepe Reina have also been linked with the soon-to-be-vacant number one position at Barcelona.
