David De Gea's girlfriend, the popstar Edurne Garcia, has seemingly confirmed that the Manchester United goalkeeper's transfer to Real Madrid is complete.

El Mundo are reporting that Garcia was caught off-microphone while taking part in a TV interview in Spain on Wednesday night suggesting that her boyfriend's move to the Spanish giants is done.

"Now, when he is in Madrid," she reportedly said, "everything will be much easier."

It is not the first time Garcia, known professionally as just Edurne, has upset the Old Trafford faithful. Back in March she agreed that Manchester was "uglier than the back of a fridge".

She was quoted as saying during that interview on entertainment show El Hormiguero: "It's not very nice, that's for sure. You have to hunt out specific places, the nicer places. But even then Spain is nicer. The reason I like it is because David’s there. With him being there, everything looks wonderful.

The 29-year-old represented Spain at this year's Eurovision Song Contest, finishing 21st overall with her song "Amanecer".

Other reports in Spain say that the move will be completed within a week, with United keen to cash in on the player. De Gea, 24, has one year left on his contract at Old Trafford.

The goalkeeper joined from Atletico Madrid for £18m back in June 2011.
