Manchester United have only scored two free-kicks all season - and we've found the reason for the malaise from the set-piece, not allowing David De Gea to take them.

The Manchester United goalkeeper - who appears to be heading for Real Madrid - took part in a skills challenge along with team-mates Angel Di Maria and Marcos Rojo

The trio were facing the freekickerz, YouTube tricksters, in three challenges to score through three holes in the goal, to hit the cross bar with a Rabona and to score a free-kick, organised by bwin.

Watch here:

After Di Maria hit the bar with a Rabona to make the score 1-1, De Gea stepped up to take his free-kick.

He buried it in the bottom corner.

Perhaps Real Madrid plan to use him as an outfield player.
