Barcelona and Real Madrid both keen on Old Trafford custodian.
La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are both keenly tracking Man United keeper David de Gea according to TuttoMercato.
The 22 year old has impressed over the past year or so after a shaky start to his Old Trafford career and is now the club’s undisputed number one starter but perhaps the chance to return to his native country may tempt the former Atletico Madrid man.
Barcelona’s first choice keeper, Victor Valdes, has already publicly stated his intention to leave the Nou Camp when his current deal comes to an end this summer and Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti, much like his predecessor Jose Mourinho, seems to have reservations about World Cup winner Iker Casillas. Indeed the 32 year old has spent much of the year warming the bench.
Therefore it’s easy to see why both La Liga sides would be keen on De Gea though Man United are unlikely to listen to offers for the £18.6m signing, knowing just how crucial it is to have a safe pair of hands behind the club’s defence.
De Gea is still yet to win his first senior Spanish national team cap, indeed he holds the joint national team record for most Under 21 international caps, and has made 88 appearances for Man United.
