Just on the eve of action at the Euro 2016. Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has been fingered in a Spanish rape case by a protected witness in a Spanish court case.
De Gea’s Spain Under-21 teammate Iker Muniain has also been implicated in the same rape scandal.
As reported in El Diario, an undisclosed witness claims that she was taken to a hotel and assaulted by two footballers – Muniain and an unnamed player – after Ignacio Fernandez Allende (aka Torbe) had forced her into the encounter against her will, while telling her that she would be compensated with huge funds in return.
It is claimed that United keeper De Gea was the person who called Torbe to arrange the meeting, with the woman reporting that they kept in touch afterwards in an effort to keep her quiet.
De Gea is also accused of trying to arrange another encounter with five United players, but there is no proof that this meeting ever took place.
Also, De Gea is mentioned in another piece of testimony in which a minor claimed to have been raped by Torbe, claiming that the incident was filmed so that Manchester United goalkeeper and some Athletic Bilbao players could watch.
