On August 31, 2015, just six years ago today, it was a day in which the Spanish goal did not change Manchester for Madrid for a matter of minutes, since the document that made the transfer official arrived after the deadline and stayed at Old Trafford .
David De Gea was at a peak when he was 25 years old in a summer where the merengue team said goodbye to an Iker Casillas who was ending his contract and had just signed Francisco “Kiko” Casilla to fill the role of substitute goal. The objective was to call Keylor Navas, who had arrived a year earlier, at Old Trafford.
The documentation arrived late and thwarted this movement to which both whites and red devils they had shown their approval. The Spanish continued to multiply its value since then (18M) until May 2018 (70M), being its moment of maximum quotation. Similarly, Keylor also showed a noticeable increase (from 10 to 20M) with the achievement of three consecutive Champions Leagues between 2016 and 2018.
The Madrilenian fell collapsed in terms of world consideration in accordance with the appointment of Russia 2018, where his performance made him not raise his head. From May 2018 until today, three years and three months later, it has fallen from € 70 million to € 18 million in valuation. The Costa Rican too, although more for becoming the substitute for Thibaut Courtois in the last stretch in the Spanish capital and for his age (34), a key factor in the appraisal of Transfermarkt.
Six years later, it is playing speculation trying to guess what would have happened in the event of this movement. The truth is that the meringues obtained an unprecedented reign in the Champions League format, defending the title for more than a thousand days and managing to conquer Europe with the Tico under sticks, in addition to an edition of LaLiga, another of the Spanish Super Cup. , three Club World Cups and two European Super Cups. For their part, Manchester United have had to settle for an FA Cup, a League Cup, a Europa League and a Community Shield.
