REAL MADRID will bid £22million for David De Gea next summer.

The Spanish giants will swoop for the Manchester United keeper, 22, who only left Atletico Madrid for £18.9m 18 months ago.

Real boss Jose Mourinho and his 31-year-old skipper Iker Casillas have fallen out this season.

A Real insider said: “De Gea is definitely wanted by Mourinho but a lot depends on his own future.
“But he’s studied De Gea’s form closely and is very interested.”


Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho surprised a great many Bernabeu fans when he elected to drop captain Iker Casillas for the club’s match at Malaga earlier this month, a match the club lost 3-2, and it seems that the act was the end result of a broken relationship between the Spanish international and his manager.

This has no doubt led to speculation that Mourinho would like to bring David de Gea back to his hometown to act as a long term replacement for the experienced one club man.

De Gea was a big success at Atletico Madrid before he was sold to Man United in a big money deal 18 months ago and whilst he initially struggled for form at Old Trafford the young custodian has grown into the role and now appears to be Sir Alex Ferguson’s number one starter ahead of Anders Lindegaard.

As such is seems unlikely the Scot would listen to offers for the 22 year old but clearly there is a history of Real Madrid successfully snapping up Man United talents with the likes of David Beckham, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, and most recently, Cristiano Ronaldo making a move from the Premier League side to the Spanish giants.
