From The Sun:
De Gea, 20, said: "Nothing really happened. Me, my cousin and a friend from Spain went to the shop, we were hungry and took the doughnuts.
"We were going to buy more things. I realised I didn't have my wallet so I went out to the car to get it. Nothing more."
Yep. That's what they all say. I wasn't going to steal this 55" 3-D TV...I was just carrying it out to my car because that's where I left my wallet.
"They thought that I was leaving without paying so I tried to explain to them but my English is still not very good and we were there for a while.
"In the end a Spanish girl arrived and we understood each other and in the end they ended up apologising to us.
"They made a big thing out of nothing but I took the whole thing as something funny."
De Gea also says that he wasn't held out of Saturday's 2-0 win over Norwich because of this ("They're not going to drop me because of a doughnut.") and that it was simply the result of regular rotations. That doesn't mean that De Gea got off without a bit of ribbing about the incident, however. He admits that some of his teammates "gave me a few doughnuts as a joke," but he thought it was funny. Probably because his plot to get a free doughnut ended up getting him even more free doughnuts.
David De Gea is a criminal mastermind.
