David de Gea found himself in something of a jam
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has found himself in a sticky situation after being warned for allegedly eating a Krispy Kreme doughnut at a local shop without paying for it.
De Gea, who joined United this summer from Atletico Madrid, earns around £70,000-a-week but apparently decided that he wasn't willing to shell out £1.19 for the sugary treat and, according to The Sun, ate it in store, before attempting to leave.
The Spaniard was tackled by security staff, who showed him CCTV footage of the incident in the store's "stop and search" room.
A source told the paper: "They [De Gea and his two friends] weren't very subtle. They swaggered in chatting loudly in Spanish. The security guards who monitor the CCTV watched two of them take a doughnut each out of the Krispy Kreme cabinet. Incredibly, they then appeared to try to leave without paying - or buying anything else for that matter."
De Gea was given a warning, but police were not called to the scene and on Thursday night a Tesco spokesman said: "A customer was spoken to by our security team and the issue was resolved."

Arrogance and no regard for anyone else, pure and simple!!! He should have been charged with theft!!!
De Gea, please stop eating donuts and focus on your fitness and goalkeeping. Take a leaf out of Van Der Sar's book, who you claim is your idol, or else Lindegaard will be pushing for no.1 spot !!!
Case of mistaken identity ........it must be Rooney !!
Typical united always cheating or stealingWhat !!!!!! what are they always stealing? The prem title ! You muppet before you speak make sure you can back it up.
How much of the £1.19 is for the doughnut and how much for the silly American brand name?
ps This lad doesn't EARN £70,000 per week that is what he is PAID.
