Man United demand Real Madrid pair in exchange for €40m David De Gea

Old Trafford side want Bernabeu duo.

Man United will demand either a straight cash sum or Real Madrid pair Sergio Ramos and Keylor Navas in exchange for keeper David De Gea according to the Marca.

De Gea has been strongly linked with a move to the Bernabeu (via the Daily Mail) and the 24-year-old and has just a year to run on his current contract (via the Daily Mirror).

This means that Man United could lose De Gea on a free transfer next summer but according to the Marca the Old Trafford side are demanding at least €40(£28m) for the Spanish international, a sum the Marca claim Real Madrid are unwilling to pay.

Rafa Benitez sold Iker Casillas to FC Porto and brought in Kiko Casilla from Espanyol, the 28-year-old having previously represented Real Madrid at youth team level.

Costa Rican international Navas has been handed Real Madrid’s number one shirt number for 2015/16 having played only a bit-part role in his debut campaign at the La Liga side.

Talk of David De Gea’s uncertain future has led to Man United being linked with a myriad of keeper signings with Ajax’s Jasper Cillessen (via the Daily Mail) and free agent Sergio Romero (via the Daily Mail) being frequently linked with moves to the Premier League side.

Whilst a move to bring in Sergio Ramos to strengthen his Man United defence could be seen as ideal by Louis van Gaal, it’s worth noting that the Spanish side have made it quite clear they have no intention of selling the 29-year-old World Cup winner (via talkSPORT).
