Manchester United fans panic over David De Gea picture

Despite signing a contract extension at the start of the season, many Manchester United fans refuse to accept the club will be able to prevent David De Gea from moving to Real Madrid.

As such, many United fans are still incredibly sensitive when it comes to speculation about their indispensable Spanish keeper and his prospective career plans.

Indeed, De Gea caused an outbreak of fevered panic on Monday morning when he changed his official Facebook and Twitter profile photos.

The central cause of the panic was De Gea's decision to use an illustrated image of himself in action that saw the United crest on his shirt removed.

While most right-minded people simply dismissed it as a copyright issue (all the branding is removed), a smattering of United fans spiralled into mild meltdown at the perceived subliminal message on display.

Hardly a photo of himself holding his new Real scarf aloft at the Bernabeu, now is it?
