Official: Real Madrid's statement about the De Gea deal.

http://www.realmadrid.com/noticias/2015/09/comunicado-oficial

Quick Google Translate:

Following yesterday's events in relation to the intended signing of the player David de Gea, Real Madrid wishes to state:

1.- Manchester United did not agree to open any negotiations over the federative rights of David de Gea until yesterday morning.

2.- Real Madrid, despite the difficulties entailed in carrying out a deal of these characteristics on the final day of registration, agreed to initiate these talks.

3.- When Manchester United agreed to negotiate yesterday morning, they made it subject to reaching an agreement with Real Madrid's Keylor Navas for the player to join the British club from this season, and stated that it was in contact with the aforementioned player's representatives.

4.- Real Madrid and Manchester United quickly reached an agreement for the transfers of both players. Following the drawing up of the relevant contractual documentation required, and with the purpose of proceeding with enough time to process both FIFA's Transfer Matching System (TMS) and the registration with the Liga de Fútbol Profesional, Real Madrid sent Manchester United the contracts at 13.39 Spanish time.

5.- Manchester United sent their remarks regarding the aforementioned contracts eight hours later, at 21.43 Spanish time, including minor modifications. As these modifications were not significant, they were all accepted immediately by Real Madrid, with the intention being able to register the player on time both via TMS and with the Liga de Fútbol Profesional.

6.- Real Madrid, having obtained the signatures of the players De Gea and Keylor Navas, sent the British club the aforementioned signed contracts at 23:32 Spanish time, before waiting to receive the final documents signed by Manchester United.

7.- Manchester United reached a final agreement with the representatives of Keylor Navas at 23:53 Spanish time, and it is at this point that the contracts were sent to the player to be signed.

8.- Manchester United entered the details of the David de Gea deal, not those of Keylor Navas, at 00:00 Spanish time, simultaneously sending Real Madrid the signed transfer contracts. Real Madrid received this complete documentation at 00:02 and attempted to access TMS, but it was now closed.

9.- At 00:26 Spanish time, FIFA's TMS invited Real Madrid to fill out the details of the player David de Gea, as the period of registration in England remains open until today. Real Madrid, in view of the possible eventuality of an administrative dispute over the player's transfer, decided to send the contracts to the Liga de Fútbol Profesional, despite the knowledge that the deadline had passed.

10.- In short, Real Madrid did everything necessary at all times to complete both transfers.

Hope you don't mind Count, I edited your post and placed the official translation for the statement.

This whole situation is a mess,both sides had their part to play in it. From Perez initiating this unneeded transfer to United making us wait until the last day and treating DeGea wrong.

Complete mess,that will IMO,work in our favor. Navas will stay our keeper,and that's exactly what 90% of Madridistas wanted in the first place. Navas has arrived for training today,had a long talk with Benitez,after witched he was convinced that the manager has complete confidence in him and that he will be a starter. In a year,we can get DDG for free if our board ( Supreme canceler Perez) still wants him and thinks Navas is not good enough. Win-win for us right now,due to a technical error.

The real victims here are DeGea and Navas,and especially DeGea who has to go back and who knows,maybe sit out the whole season. It's not easy going back to a club you clearly wanted to leave. Navas knows the fans and the coaching stuff want him here,but i can only imagine what he's opinion on Perez is.

Pejvl you got to explain to me how guys like Badge become MOds cause seems someone slept at the wheel he allows full on pictures of vulgarity towards a city on his board and repremands others who makes criticisms towards anything to do with his club or coach etc.
Who does Badge hail for?
Consider me a Man Utd hater from now on. Dragging their feet til the last minute for what? a moral victory? Classless douche bags. No wonder you can't attract world class talent any more.

And what talent you do attract (Di Maria) uses you as a springboard for bigger and better things.

Its not Madrid's fault Sergio Ramos has no interest in playing for your club. Or Bale, or Ronaldo, or Varane, or Benzema or any other player you've tried to pry away from us these last few years.

Feel so sorry for De Gea who has to go back to that club now. Low hours for him right now.

Hopefully it'll get resolved in the next couple of days but I'm not holding my breathe.
Yeah you're right, WE dragged our feet.
We had a price for DDG and instead of RM trying to match it or offer us something even reasonable, the only bids received from RM was around 12m-14m pounds. Had we received this bid 1-2 weeks ago DDG would have already made his debut by now.
And yeah, it's gonna suck for DDG to come back to a club where he's adored by the fans for one more year. It must be great for Navas to come back to a club that literally wanted to force him out without giving him a chance to prove himself.

Perez had all summer to have this sorted out and completely ignored our demands until the very last day of the transfer window. But if insulting us and putting all the blame on us for being classless douchebags as you eloquently put it makes you feel better, then by all means, go ahead.
We can't all be as classy as Perez and co.
+4
Negotiations started when United wanted which was on the last day of the transfer.

12m-14m pounds? Stop lying for christ sakes. I have literally seen that figure no where.

Madrid's offer has always been 25+5m euros. Which was what United accepted in the end. Add Navas valued 10m euros and you get you're 40m euro deal.

Stop lying. smh
+2
Yeah Real Madrid attract all these world class players but don't win the trophies your supposed too. 1 la liga and Ucl in how many years? lol. Barcelona make a joke of you guys.
+2
Badge you have avery warped view fo things cause I have heard the chants from United fans online and they dont seem very loving like you like to portray, just like you allow vitrolic insults and f**k MADRID pics on your board pretty classy MOd you are, yea we had all summer to do this but we will not pay what you want when a playr is on his last year of contract and neither would you its called negotiating leverage 101.

Seems MAN U fans on here forget all the names you all call us blag blah is the same others around UK call you but its ok perspective is always a funny thing, seems it was you guys who iniated contact on the last day perhaps to make a point perhaps for other reasons, but we already had to keepers set for the season and waited to see if you wanted to deal and it seems you did.

Yea Mikey its pretty obvious we have to play possibly the best team in history in our league we make no qualms about it it is what it is, but this nonsense about them making a joke of us ahaha look at the records and the games and we have held our own and won our tenth UCL with the same Barcelona dominance, but imagine what they would have dont to you in your league over these seasons.

@MikeyUnited at least we're shown up by another quality team and not by our own poor displays.
http://www.espnfc.us/story/2591792/man-united-blame-real-madrid-over-david-de-gea-deal-report


That clears it up tremendously.
Its a mess, I doubt either club will own up to whose fault it is.

A few sources are saying United were on time with the documents and Madrid were late. Talk of formatting issues, password protected documents, Madrid trying to get the fee lowered at the last minute.

Its been a circus and both clubs have lost, we're stuck with an unhappy and unsettled De Gea and you guys are stuck with an unhappy and unsettled Navas.

Expect some mud slinging in the press conferences to come. For arguably the two biggest clubs in the world it has been a pathetic state of affairs.

Three months ago, we offered United 30 million but they refused anything less than 40. Today, they accepted the 30 million. There is no shame in that, but they could've said yesterday or last week "we will accept your 30 million".

Technically speaking, today we offered United less than 30 million since they agreed to buy Navas from us on a second deal. Had they accepted our original deal of 30 million three months ago, they could've profited more money! Isn't that ironic? They refused any offer less than 40 million but today they settled for 30 million. This is my point guys..They could've accepted the 30 million yesterday or last week. But Man Utd wanted to make this a "last minute" signing.

For the record, I believe Man Utd did the politically correct way in this transfer. I respect the club, so there is no bad blood. They wanted to say to the world, "we are not pushovers, we make deals on our terms". But I believe they took this approach too far. I mean, what was wrong with our original deal of 30 million three months ago? That was a heavy-weight deal, it could've been the Second Most Expensive signing after Buffon's 32.6 million. So 30 million? It was not "push over" deal. This is the problem guys, did they really have to make it 40 million? Did they really have to make it the "most-expensive" signing in the history? DeGea wants Madrid, and Madrid wants him. I know he is their player but come on! This is more like greedy-bully on United's part, sorry no offence. The summary is, they didn't have to wait on the last day to make the announcement (mistake #1 too late). Declining the 30 million three months ago (mistake #2 too greedy).
+2
Well I don't know about you guys,but I'm happy Navas is staying and that we didn't splash on DeGea lol.

This was a very unprofessional deal from United,the whole situation was mishandled. Everybody know that they delayed the transfer until the very last moment so they could just "get one over us". DeGea wanted to leave and was ready for months,everybody in Manchester knew that and still they let him root in the stands just so that they could make life harder for us. And now when they finally decided they had enough of their fun,they send the paper to late. This could have been done weeks ago,but they wanted us to wait as much as possible,and guess what happened...another Coentrao deal,and again United was late. It's also very possible that we messed up in processing the files,but like I said before,we never wanted this deal to go trough on the last day in midnight.

I fell bad for DeGea and Navas,both were played by their clubs. Now DeGea has to go back to the club he wanted to leave,maybe sit out the whole season,or play under pressure knowing form the fans that are surly not going to be happy to see him back. On the other hand,Navas knows he was just a pawn in a bigger transfer deal. Damn you Perez,we really didn't need DeGea,this could have all been avoided if you actually watched any of our games.
+2
Count: Whoever made the administrative mistake and missed the deadline is irrelevant. The way transfers work isn't necessarily based on market values but the conditions surrounding the buyer and seller. Levy drew out the bale deal until the final few days even though Bale had stopped training with Spurs for over 3 weeks before deadline. Compared to Spurs, United was always in a terrible position in this deal and in theory, had no business even making demands. But they tried the "who blinks first" strategy because they know very well how Perez functions. Navas' name wasn't involved in any rumors in the previous weeks which leads me to believe Madrid sweetened the deal in the last few days by offering a player swap plus cash. We all know united are looking to a top goal keeper and Navas was surely not going to sit on the bench one more year playing second fiddle to De Gea. So if Perez wanted De Gea so bad this year, why not make the logical offer earlier?

I don't know why you think United was greedy. Everybody wants to get the most out of their players. Nobody other than Barca completes transfers for stupid money early in the season. We literally handed over Cesc and Alexis for 15m less each than what they could have got for them had they held off until the last few days. But that's Barca. They aren't known for making great transfer deals.
Funny u read all the posts and the f**k Madrid fax machine pic they have on there board and they all claim some how we were one minute late in our papers but the Internet a buzz are all claiming it was united who sent the papers late, we'll let's see who is who and what is what in the next few days, I think this is hilarious frankly cause last time I checked we have two keepers everyone is happy with and a third by the name of Degea that wanted to come so bad he turned down a massive offer to come home and perhaps may come afterall for free.

Either way there is blame enough for everyone in this mess but madridistas should feel good about the fact that we have two great keepers between the posts and if DeGea doesnt come all the best to him in Manchester.
+4
i think De gea should just sit it out or give his final best for United... he will get a lot of compensation from Real Madrid or any other tem that decides to sign him.

Official: We have a game against Espanyol away in 2 wks!! With a gk.
Continue to prove your worth Keylor!!!

There are numerous reports that DeGea's papers weren't delivered in time before the transfer window closed! There is still hope for Navas!

Here you go Slim. I think I am allowed to post since I have sourced from your list of qualified sources.

:'D
If Navas goes as part of the De Gea deal I will be livid.
nah both players are staying at their clubs.. apparently united were 1 minute late XD
1 minute late lol Don't be a sheep.... These clubs don't make mistakes.
They don't?? So what do you call buying two players in Jan and only one of them could have played in UCL for you knowing you wanted both to play. Sometimes these big "corporations" do make mistakes.
@HansUpskirt

everyone is reporting it..

http://as.com/diarioas/2015/08/31/english/1441026081_347976.html

Ok not 1 minute late but rather 28 -- it's still embarrassing that these 2 clubs couldn't reach an agreement on time when this whole DDG saga started MONTHS ago.
+1
It is called "Coentrao to ManU ver. 2.0"
De Gea to Madrid for 25m + 5m in variables. (shocking)

In a parallel operation...

Navas to United for approx 12m-15m. Navas has his wages doubled from 2m to 4m.

All EUROS.
+1
Well, remember our conversation earlier this month? You said i wasn't making sense? I told you Perez doesn't work on what's needed for your team. Navas is a stud and you don't need de gea at the moment. But Perez has to cover his bases just in case s**t goes bad and he is blamed for not "fixing" the team. If you win trophies he gets to be king. Win-win situation for him. He did the same s**t 10 years ago. Same playbook different times.
+3
Franky clearly you are not stating the obvious...this is the work Man Utd alone! if it was up to Perez, we wouldve signed DDG at the beginning of the summer...Clearly it is Man Utd wanted to make it a "last day" signing. Not Perez.
+2
Yes I'm NOT stating the obvious. It was always Perez' call. It's like playing poker knowing your opponent's weak hand and still folding. He could either
1) pay stupid money to get de gea or
2) trust navas and keep the current team which is quite balanced and get ddg for free.

United actually was in a terrible position with this deal because if ddg had stayed back they would lose €25m and not be able to have him play at 100%. But this is perez. He has done such things in the past. Ddg is a bigger and much more marketable star than navas. So after crunching numbers im sure he figured he'll still come out on top. Overall its not a bad decision but perez doesn't care what fans think. It's as simple as that.
+6
@Thecount9010 "......this is the work Man Utd alone! "
"Clearly it is Man Utd wanted to make it a "last day" signing. Not Perez."

Please man up, both parties are at fault. United held their stance and so did Madrid. If anything you guys could've signed him months ago were you as willing back then as you were today on deadline day.

Why is it that you always expect everyone to simply bend over when Madrid come knocking?
MU4E1999

Three Months ago, we offered 30 million, you said you wanted 40. Today, our offer was the same, you accepted. Why did you accept so late?
