Manchester United could be dealt a blow in the near future, with Real Madrid lining up a huge transfer bid for stopper David De Gea.
A summer move for the Spain international from the Spanish giants is looking increasingly likely, with any fee likely to smash the existing transfer record for a goalkeeper.
This would mean that Real would pay more than the £33 million that Juventus paid Parma to sign Gianluigi Buffon in 2001, a move that secured them one of the best goalkeepers in history.
De Gea played for Real’s city rivals Atletico Madrid prior to signing for Man Utd, and he could be tempted into making the switch back to Spain’s capital city, especially to join one of the world’s largest clubs.
According to the Daily Express, with only 18 months left to run on his current contract, Man Utd will likely look to open fresh talks in order to avoid losing a player who has been integral to their recent run of form.
The Old Trafford club have won six matches in a row.
