David De Gea's move from Manchester United to Real Madrid is off after someone apparently failed to send off the requisite paperwork on time.
The documents did not arrive on time!!!!!! Presentation was ready. All agreed. But as it stands de Gea stays at MUFC!!— Guillem Balague (@GuillemBalague) August 31, 2015

Twitter responded accordingly...
