Euro giants must overcome one major hurdle in pursuit of Man Utd star

The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern have been impressed with goalkeeper David De Gea this season…

The Spaniard has been the last line of defence in a rollercoaster of a season so far, though his job has become significantly easier as the season has progressed.

Man Utd have improved defensively, with the likes of Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones returning to the first team, and with that has come a fantastic run of form.

David De Gea’s performances have been great, though, but that hasn’t gone unnoticed – with Real Madrid reportedly keen on the Spaniard as they look to sign a new goalkeeper in the summer.

Unfortunately for Real Madrid, though, the Spanish giants have one major obstacle to overcome – Jose Mourinho.

According to Spanish publication Sport, Jose Mourinho is not keen to see the goalkeeper leave the club, and is willing to do all he can to keep him at Old Trafford.

His current contract reportedly includes the option of an extended year, which Sport suggest could serve as a means of ‘committing’ De Gea to Man Utd – with Jose Mourinho undoubtedly hopeful that he can ensure the longevity of his goalkeepers stay in the Premier League.

For the Man Utd fans in the Tavern, nothing is more important than securing the long-term future of De Gea. He has been a constant under Mourinho in the Premier League, and he is undoubtedly one of the Premier League’s best.

After struggling during his early days in Manchester, De Gea has really improved lately – with the Spaniard on course to make this season his best yet performance-wise.
