De Gea makes another mistake to cost Man United

However, that just makes our 1-1 draw against Chelsea all the more disappointing, as a win would have seen us finally move up the table.

It was a mistake that could have huge ramifications, too, ending United's realistic chances of qualifying for next season's Champions League.

Those hopes were dashed after United goalkeeper David de Gea's latest blunder allowed Marcos Alonso to equalise two minutes before half time.

If need be, the Old Trafford management is ready to trigger the €120 million release clause included in the fresh terms Oblak recently penned with Atletico.

"A draw was not a bad result for us but I think if we believed a bit more we could score another goal".

The Spaniard could only parry Antonio Rudiger's long range strike straight out to Marcos Alonso, who scored to give the Blues a valuable point in their huge clash at Old Trafford in the race for a top four spot.

Real have a guaranteed place in Europe's prime competition next season, something that Hazard's current club can not boast currently.The English side lie in 4th place on 68 points with 2 games to go, 2 points ahead of Arsenal and 3 ahead of Manchester United as they look to get back into the Champions League after a season in the Europa League.

De Gea's mistakes come as speculation grows surrounding his future.

"Of course I'll sit down and speak to David as I've done when he's played well".

He has been derided throughout the campaign and failed to establish himself as first choice under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

"I don't know if I will stay, I'm not here to entertain rumours", he told the Guardian.

"I don't have any worries about him, because he's a strong character", Solskjaer said.

Our two remaining fixtures are against Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City at home.

The truth of the matter is that De Gea is not just the best option United have, he remains among the very best in the world. There is no chance anyone can blame him for losing points. They lie in 3rd place with 65 points, with 4th placed Getafe 10 points behind them with only 3 games remaining.
