The former Atletico Madrid defender says that his former teammate will have to settle for the wrath of the club’s fans if he chooses to join Real Madrid
The Spain international is desperate to leave Manchester United this summer for the Spanish giants and despite starting his career with bitter rivals Atletico Madrid at the age of 13, he is willing to burn bridges. And Ujfalusi, who played with de Gea for a few years, says that the player will become an extremely unpopular person if he joins Real Madrid given that his roots are at the Vicente Calderon.
“No, no, no. They are not going to forgive him [if he moves to Real Madrid], for sure,” the retired Czech Republic international, who represented Atletico from 2008 to 2011, told the Daily Mail.
“It’s also a surprise for me because he’s an Atletico Madrid fan – when he was young his heart was with Atletico Madrid. It’s not going to be easy for him to make this decision.”
