De Gea will not play Saturday against Newcastle, as manager Louis van Gaal said he will wait until after the transfer window to decide when the goalkeeper will play, ESPN FC reports.

Sept. 1 marks the end of the transfer window, when De Gea will no longer be tempted by a move to Real Madrid. A move in January is always a possibility, though it seems more likely he'll leave on a free next summer. Sergio Romero will continue to start in De Gea's spot, with Sam Johnstone as the backup.

De Gea will not play Friday against Aston Villa.

Manager Louis van Gaal continues to sit De Gea while he pushes for a move to Real Madrid, but with the Spanish giants not yet willing to meet United's valuation, the goalkeeper's playing time has stopped. Sergio Romero will get the start Friday.

Manager Louis van Gaal said Friday that De Gea will not start Saturday's Premier League opener against Tottenham because he is distracted by his desired move to Real Madrid, the Daily Telegraph reports. "He shall not play," van Gaal said. "A player is also a human being more than a player and he cannot manage that. We will have to see who starts."

De Gea has been linked with Real Madrid all summer, and he has made it clear that he'd like to head to Spain by refusing to sign a contract extension with Manchester United (he has one year left on his deal). United are reportedly asking for 45 million for De Gea, while Madrid do not want to spend more than 25 million. Sam Johnstone and Sergio Romero are the top options to replace De Gea on Saturday, with the former the slight favorite.

De Gea is unlikely to play in Sunday's season-finale against Hull City because of the hamstring injury he suffered Saturday against Arsenal, the Independent reports.

Victor Valdes, who replaced De Gea in Saturday's match after he came off in the second half, will likely get the start. De Gea is widely believed to want a move to Spain next season, with Real Madrid the likeliest destination.
