The Atlético de Madrid and Manchester United They will play the last 16 of the Champions League, playing the first leg in the Spanish capital on February 23 and the return in the English city on March 15.
One of the attractions of the tie will be the return of David De Gea to Madrid, where he will play for the first time against the team in which he trained in the lower categories and with which he made a hole in the football elite.
It will also be the reunion with the mattress fans, who loved him so much when he was rojiblanco but which ended up repudiating him for the forms of his march, for the little affection he later showed towards the club and for his desire to sign for the eternal rival, the Real Madrid.
As well, From Gea He has reacted on his social networks to a message from the official Manchester United account in which he remembered his past. “Back to where it all began”wrote the British, with an image of De Gea with Atlético and another with his current team.
The response of the Spanish international was to put two eyes, perhaps as a sign of expectation, although the meaning is only understood by him. A strange reaction for a footballer who spent many years at Atlético.
