The travelling Arsenal fans were sensational once again at Old Trafford on Sunday and they couldn’t help but land another verbal blow to our old enemies as David de Gea trudged off the pitch.
The Spaniard picked up a hamstring injury moments before we equalised and as he limped towards the touchline, the travelling Gooners reminded the hosts that his substitution could mark the last time they saw him play at Old Trafford.
Speculation is rife that a deal to take De Gea to Real Madrid is close, which was confirmed by Louis van Gaal after the game and the clubs is resigned to losing him.

After the taunts we received from them during the few years which proceeded Robin van Persie departure, it was only right that we returned the favour.

“David de Gea, he’s off to Madrid” was belted out from the away-end in what seems like a shift in power between the two clubs.
We’re set to finish above them yet again, and hopefully add another trophy to our cabinet, while they lose their best player this summer to a Spanish giant.
