It is only a matter of time before David De Gea ceases to be the goalkeeper of Manchester United – the Manchester United netminder has reportedly agreed terms with Real Madrid switch Old Trafford for the Santiago Bernabeu.
De Gea is currently enjoying an awe-inspiring form that has earned him so much plaudits by fans and pundits of the EPL and that has stirred Real Madrid’s interest in him. The Spanish shot-stopper came close to joining Real Madrid in the summer of 2015 but a faulty fax machine scuppered the move on the deadline day of that transfer window.
Madrid have identified him as the perfect replacement for Iker Casillas and they want to realise the dream of having him as a Galatico at the end of this season. According to COS, De Gea has informed Manchester United of his dream of lacing his boots for Madrid and he’s already held talks with Los Blancos for the move.
However, they claim in their report that the deal is heavily hinged on the permanent sale of James Rodriguez to Bayern Munich, in order to raise funds for De Gea’s deal. Rodriguez will cost Bayern Munich the excess of €50m and that money would have reduce the burden of paying €100m to Manchester United for De Gea.
Jose Mourinho revealed last summer that they will not listen to offers for De Gea but money rules the modern day transfer market – it will be difficult for the Red Devils to resist good offers for the player.
