As per the recent reports in the media, Real Madrid are preparing to launch a late bid to sign David De Gea from Manchester United before the end of the transfer market.
The Champions League winners have been on the trail of Monaco young star Kylian Mbappe all summer with the hope of bringing him to the Santiago Bernabeu but Zinedine Zidane has reportedly ended his interest in the teenage sensation after being impressed by the brilliant performances of Marco Asensio, with Madrid also not interested in bringing in another Galactico outfield player.
And Madrid boss has now turned his attentions to securing the signature of Real Madrid’s long-term target De Gea. The La Liga champions have been a huge admirer of the Spanish goalkeeper and have made attempts to sign him in the past.
He was on the verge of joining them in the summer of 2015 but for an administrative error on transfer deadline day which stopped the transfer.
Earlier this summer Jose Mourinho has insisted and confident that the Spain international is not leaving Old Trafford but to according to the Sun, Real Madrid are now ready to launch a bid of £46 million for the shot-stopper.
“I can guarantee that he’s not going this season, that I can. My feeling is it will be very difficult for him to go. Because he’s a very honest boy, very straight,” said Mourinho last month.
De Gea has two years left on his contract at Old Trafford and it is not certain United are ready to part with him now.
