Real Madrid eager to steal David De Gea from Manchester United
Reports from Spain indicate Real Madrid are creeping closer to a transfer move for Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea. Insiders at the Spanish club suggest Real Madrid are set to place a £20 million on David De Gea when the transfer window opens next month.
Real Madrid are hunting for a long-term successor to the legendary Spanish shot-stopper Iker Casillas. David De Gea, who is inarguably the best young Spanish talent to play between the stick in recent years, is expected to replace Iker Casillas in the Spanish national team in the future.
Iker Casillas was dropped from the Real Madrid squad against Malaga, a match that resulted in defeat for Jose Mourinho’s side. Nonetheless, dropping Iker Casillas from the first-team indicates that Jose Mourinho could be using more youngsters between the sticks in the future.
Jose Mourinho’s looks eager to invest in a new goalkeeper for Real Madrid. Sir Alex Ferguson, who bought David De Gea as replacement for Edwin van der Sar, isn’t sure about who should be his first team goalkeeper.
Sir Alex Ferguson often has a tough time deciding between Anders Lindegaard and David De Gea. Both goalkeepers haven’t been able to show stable form at Manchester United, which is one of the biggest reasons why Sir Alex Ferguson hasn’t been able to decide who he prefers between the sticks.
Real Madrid are planning on making £20 million bid for David De Gea, a bid that should be large enough to attract interest from Manchester United. Jose Mourinho has refused to comment on whether Real Madrid will approach Manchester United with a bid for David De Gea this winter, but clubs officials have confirmed interest in the youngster.
Reportedly, Manchester United scouts are in hunt for a new goalkeeper. The young English goalkeeper Jack Butland has turned out to be an object of interest for Manchester United and a number of other clubs, but no official bids have been put on him yet.
