Man Utd will not sell David De Gea – Louis van Gaal

Manchester United are “not selling” goalkeeper David
De Gea before the transfer window closes on 1
September, says manager Louis van Gaal.
The Spain international, 24, has been strongly linked
with a move to Real Madrid throughout the summer,
but Van Gaal insists he will stay at United.
“I think when Manchester United wants a player he
shall come, besides when a club isn’t selling,” said the
Dutchman.
“It is the same with us. We are not selling De Gea.”
De Gea has a year left on his contract. However, he
has not been selected for either of United’s first two
Premier League matches, against Tottenham and
Aston Villa, because Van Gaal believes his keeper
cannot focus with the speculation surrounding Real
Madrid’s interest.
He will once again be in the stands when United take
on Newcastle United on Saturday, with Argentina
international Sergio Romero, who has kept two clean
sheets, again poised to start.

Yohan Cabaye would walk straight into Arsenal’s midfield, claims Alan Pardew

Alan Pardew believes Yohan Cabaye would walk
into Arsenal’s starting line-up after seeing the
midfielder set an early benchmark at Crystal
Palace.
Cabaye signed for £12.8million from Paris Saint-
Germain during the summer and showed his class
in the Eagles’ 3-1 win at Norwich City in their
Barclays Premier League season opener.
Palace welcome Arsenal to Selhurst Park on
Sunday, and Pardew feels Cabaye would be a
definite starter under Arsene Wenger.
‘He’s a fantastic player. He’s definitely at the level
of Arsenal’s players,’ Pardew insisted. ‘I don’t think
anyone at Arsenal would disagree with that.
‘He would get in their team. In the season to come
[you can see] how strong the lower Premier
League teams are.
‘Look at West Ham, look at us, we’re stronger,
Stoke, their signing this week is fantastic. That
second tier is getting stronger.’
Cabaye struggled to become a regular starter at
Ligue 1 giants PSG, but is expected to play a vital
role at Palace this season.
