Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has become embroiled in a sex abuse scandal in Spain. The 25-year-old has been accused by an alleged victim and witness in the investigation of pornographer Ignacio Fernandez Allende.

The female witness claims De Gea was involved in arranging her meeting with Athletic Bilbao star Iker Muniain and another unnamed player and was forced to have sexual relations with them.

The alleged incident is said to have occurred at a five-star hotel in Madrid back in 2012, when the players were with Spain's under-21 side, according to Spanish newspaper El Diario.es.

The woman has alleged that although De Gea did not have sex with her, the United star was responsible for arranging the encounter through Allende, who is more commonly known as 'Torbe' in Spain.
