MANCHESTER United’s Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea has scored an own goal after stealing a £1.19 (1.4 euro) doughnut from Tesco.
The highly-rated 20-year-old was confronted by security staff at the store in Altrincham, Greater Manchester after being spotted on CCTV helping himself.
The Spanish Under-21 international, who earns around 80,000 euros a week, is alleged to have taken the Krispy Creme doughnut from a cabinet and scoffing it in the shop before attempting to leave without paying.
The keeper – signed from Atletico Madrid in the summer for a whopping 21 million euros – was taken to a back room to explain himself but was allowed to leave without any further action being taken.
