David de Gea transfer could see Real Madrid player move to Manchester United

Manchester United‘s David de Gea transfer situation remains complicated, as trusted journalist Daniel Taylor reports that a swap deal with Real Madrid could still be possible.

The Guardian writer has tweeted that Real’s Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas has been offered to the Red Devils as part of the move, which looks a very promising deal indeed for the Premier League giants.

With Sergio Romero joining earlier this summer, United have given the Argentine shot-stopper a chance as their number one in their opening six games of the season, though he has not always looked entirely convincing, particularly in the 2-1 defeat at Swansea City this weekend.

Not quite in the same bracket as De Gea, Romero could now settle for a backup role in Louis van Gaal’s squad, with Navas arguably more befitting of being first choice for a club of United’s size.

The 28-year-old has not managed to establish himself as a regular at the Bernabeu, but shone at previous club Levante, as well as for his national side, for whom he has won 61 caps and played at a World Cup.

Reports from Marca earlier today back up Taylor’s claims that Navas could be included in the deal.
