Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has escaped a penalty after he was caught nicking a 1.19-pounds doughnut in Tesco recently.
The 20-year-old Spaniard, who was signed by the club in an 18.3-million-pounds deal and reportedly earns around 70,000 pounds-a-week, was let off with a warning for allegedly eating a Krispy Kreme doughnut at a store in Altrincham, Greater Manchester, without paying for it.
De Gea was tackled by security staff, who showed him the CCTV footage of the incident in the store's "stop and search" room.
"De Gea and his two Spanish pals weren't very subtle. They swaggered in chatting loudly in Spanish," a source told the Sun.
"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," the source added.
Police were not called and no further action was taken.
Meanwhile, a Tesco spokesman has confirmed that the issue has been resolved
