The challenge for Jose Mourinho in this transfer window has not being the signing of players, but he may be unable to keep some of his key players in the fold.
Spain international and Man United goalkeeper David De Gea has informed Jose Mourinho that he wants to join Spanish giant Real Madrid.
Since the departure of Iker Casilas from Real Madrid, the Santiago Bernabeu outfit have lined up David De Gea as his heir. David Gea was close to joining Los Blancos in the penultimate season but for a faulty fax machine on transfer deadline day, which saw him return to Old Trafford and penned down a contract extension.
According to Don Balon Real Madrid have reignited interest in the player , and Florentino Perez is desperate to sign him before the close of this transfer window.
De Gea has reportedly informed his agent Jorge Mendes to go ahead with negotiations for his transfer while the report by Don Balon further added that De Gea will displace Keylor Navas in-between the sticks for Real Madrid.
David De Gea pulled off so many stunning stops, blocks and finger-tip acrobatics last season which helped the Red Devils to win the Europa and EFL Cup.
Man United ended last season in sixth position on the Premier League log but Jose Mourinho has already spent heavily in the transfer window as he looks to push for the title next season.
With Jose Mourinho’s recent claim, it will be difficult for United to allow the shot-stopper leave.
“David is top in the world and obviously we want to keep the top in the world,” Mourinho said.
De Gea is valued at €40m.
