De Gea and Muniain cleared in Torbe case

The sexual abuse case brought against adult film director Torbe is no longer set to implicate Spain footballers David de Gea and Iker Munain.

Police are said to have found inconsistencies in the witness testimonies which saw the Manchester United goalkeeper and Athletic Bilbao winger both named as suspects just days before Spain began their Euro 2016 campaign in June.

According to Interviu magazine the pair have therefore been cleared of any wrongdoing by both prosecutors and the judge presiding over the trial, meaning that neither will have to testify in the case against Torbe – real name Ignacio Allende Fernandez – who was arrested in May on charges of child pornography and trafficking.

De Gea held a press conference refuting the allegations while Munain also publicly denied any wrongdoing through his social media accounts.
