Man United take another swipe at Real Madrid in statement

Manchester United have issued another response to Real Madrid in the increasingly bitter fallout from last night's botched transfer of David De Gea.

United have released a statement this evening, which defends their involvement in the deal and claims that the English FA can verify that they had filed their paperwork in time.

"It is our understanding that the deals couldn’t happen because: Real Madrid didn’t upload David’s documents onto TMS in time (Manchester United did). Real Madrid didn’t upload David’s documents to the Spanish league in time, per reports it seems some 28 minutes after the deadline," they said.

"The fact that Manchester United filed the papers on time was acknowledged by the Football Association, who offered to support that claim in any discussions with FIFA. The club offered this assistance, as well as its own timestamped documents to Real Madrid but they have chosen not to go down this route.

"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."

Earlier this evening, United also pulled off the biggest deal of the transfer deadline day in the Premier League.

The club announced the £36M capture of Anthony Martial from Monaco on a four-year contract.
