Jose Mourinho would be willing to let David de Gea leave Manchester United in the summer transfer window if Real Madrid pays €85m for his signature, according to reports.

The Spaniard has been incredible at Old Trafford but has been heavily linked with a summer exit, especially after the Portuguese boss claimed the next game he will play will be against LA Galaxy in the pre-season.

He’s come very close to a move to Madrid before with the deal collapsing in the last minutes of the transfer deadline day, but reports claim he could finally be set for a move to Spain this summer.

Mourinho has claimed he will do everything he can to keep hold of de Gea this summer as the world’s best goalkeeper but if he sets his heart on leaving, the Portuguese boss can’t force him to stay.

United have been linked with a move for Jan Oblak as a replacement for the Spaniard, however, if it’s possible, United should be working very hard to ensure he doesn’t leave.

Mourinho will be able to claim a substantial fee for his services but there aren’t many goalkeepers in the world that will be able to fill his shoes in between the sticks at Old Trafford.
