Manchester United have been sent an ultimatum over David de Gea‘s potential transfer to Real Madrid.
A report from The Mirror suggests Man United have been offered a take it or leave it offer of €30m for the 24-year-old goalkeeper, with Madrid unwilling to meet United’s demands of a €35 million straight-up fee.
De Gea has been widely linked with a potential move to Los Blancos this summer, a move which, if completed, could potentially see Sergio Ramos move the other way.
However, United’s tough stance on De Gea’s valuation has caused friction and delays in any move for him. Although there is only one year left on his contract, United have absolutely no intention of letting him leave for cheap.
If Madrid are trying to force United into a cut-price deal, they’ll more than likely be met with a closed door. Ed Woodward has had the upper hand in negotiations so far and although there is the suggestion that De Gea’s mental state is being affected by the current situation, that would completely change if he knew he was staying for another year.
As he wants to play for Spain in Euro 2016, De Gea would put his heart and soul into every performance this season regardless of what club he plays at.
For that reason, United should just simply ignore all of Real Madrid’s advances and force them to wait for another season at the very least. Who knows, maybe De Gea would then choose to sign a long term contract with United.
What do you think, should United keep De Gea for another season and let him go on a free, or cash in while they still can?
