Manchester United expecting another bid from Real Madrid for David De Gea – report

by Tanveer Arayan


Manchester United are expecting another Real Madrid bid for David De Gea this summer, according to ESPN.

They have been continuously linked with a move for the Spaniard and are set to make a new proposal, especially after Gianluigi Donnarumma signed a new contract at AC Milan.

Madrid had targeted the Italian teenager and Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois as they looked to replace Keylor Navas, but with both deals looking unlikely, they are moving to revive interest in De Gea.

He is under contract until 2019 with the option of another year after signing a new long-term deal when his move to the Bernabeu collapsed on the 2015 summer transfer deadline day.

De Gea is allegedly still looking to make the move at some point in his career, but United are not willing to sell him this summer, especially for the price Real are offering.

A new bid for De Gea will only increase tensions between both teams after their recent battle over hotels and facilities in Los Angeles, even with a move for Alvaro Morata breaking down as Real tried to squeeze the best possible deal out of United.

£60m is just not enough for De Gea anymore, especially after some of the signings we’ve seen this summer and if Pickford is worth £30m, then one of the best goalkeepers in the world would be worth much more than just double.
