United had not initiated talks on a possible De Gea transfer until Monday morning, the statement said.Real then sent the contracts signed by De Gea and Navas back to United for their signature at 12:32 Beirut time, 28 minutes before the deadline.United entered the details of De Gea's transfer into TMS at exactly midnight Spanish time but did not register the Navas deal and by then it was too late for Real to access the system. A spokesman for United said they had no immediate response to Real's statement.As things stand, De Gea, whose deal with United expires at the end of the season when he can leave for free, could find himself out in the cold, at least until the end of the year when the market opens again.
