Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has a release clause in his contract that would allow him to leave Old Trafford for €60m, it has been claimed.
Madrid-based publication Marca reports that De Gea could quit United for €60m as per a stipulation in the agreement signed when he extended his deal with the club in 2015.
De Gea put pen-to-paper on that contract, Marca notes, shortly after a move to Real Madrid collapsed in the final hours of the summer transfer window.
The report adds that Madrid are currently happy with Keylor Navas in goal, but may still be interested in De Gea.
The Spain international is tied to United until 2019 with the option for a further year, having moved to the Premier League from Atletico Madrid in 2011.
De Gea has made more than 200 United appearances in his five-and-a-half years at the club, winning the Premier League title in 2012-13 and the FA Cup in 2016, as well as the Community Shield in 2011, 2013 and 2016.
The 26-year-old has also become his country’s first choice, taking over from veteran Iker Casillas, having made his senior international bow in 2014.
De Gea twice won the European Under-21 Championship with Spain, as well as claiming the Under-17 version.
