Manchester United transfer blow as vital star holds talks over move to dream club

Posted by

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has reportedly laid out his demands to Real Madrid after holding transfer talks with the Spanish giants.

This could be a blow for the Red Devils, with the Daily Mirror recently claiming the club feared their star player harboured ambitions of playing in La Liga again in the future.

Don Balon now claim De Gea has been discussing terms with Real, though one positive for United is it could take a considerable sum of money to persuade him to move.

The Spain international is said to be demanding as much as £13million a year from Los Blancos, which could prove too much even for them.

The report from Don Balon adds that alternatives are being looked at in the form of Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and Athletic Bilbao’s Kepa.

With De Gea proving one of United’s most important performers in the recent win at Arsenal, there’s surely no price the club would sell him for right now.

The 27-year-old made a number of majestic saves at the Emirates Stadium against a dominant Gunners side that will still be scratching their heads at how they failed to get past the opposition ‘keeper.
