Manchester United have made it clear that they never offered goalkeeper David De Gea to Real Madrid.
The Spain international was all set to join the Spanish giants but the deal was not completed in time for the Spanish transfer deadline.
But the Manchester club published a statement on their official website to say that they were not at fault for the collapse of the transfer.
"Manchester United did not seek contact from Real Madrid for the sale of David," the statement says.
"David is a key member of our squad and the club’s preference was not to sell.
"No offer was received for David until yesterday
"Manchester United acts appropriately and efficiently in its transfer dealings.
"The club is delighted that its fan-favourite double Player of the Year, David de Gea, remains a Manchester United player."
