Van Gaal hints De Gea could leave

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has given the clearest indication yet that they face the prospect of losing goalkeeper David De Gea to Real Madrid.

Van Gaal says the 24-year old will have a "difficult" decision to make if the La Liga giants approach him about becoming the successor to veteran Spain international Iker Casillas.

De Gea went off with a hamstring injury during Sunday's 1-1 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford, which makes him a doubt for United's last match of the season at Hull City next weekend - and means he may have played his final game for the club.
