Fans plead for de Gea to stay with Man United


Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea signing autographs for fans at the McLaren showroom in Leng Kee Road yesterday morning. The 24-year-old Spaniard is in town amid a transfer wrangle between his current club and Spanish football giants Real Madrid, and had stopped by the showroom to view the new McLaren P1 hybrid supercar with his pop-star girlfriend Edurne Garcia. Despite fans' pleas for him to stay with the Red Devils, de Gea remained an impassive figure throughout the visit, as well as when acceding to fans' requests for pictures and autographs.
