Manchester United fans are looking up and moving over to the bar here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Daily Mirror claim that they could well be set to lose one of their key players.
The man in question is apparently goalkeeper David De Gea who has been heavily linked with Real Madrid in recent months with Los Blancos reportedly ready to sanction a £30 million deal.
Whilst it was pure speculation before, now it seems that the Spanish giants are stepping up their pursuit of the stopper by making contact with his representatives over a move.
De Gea is viewed by many at the Bernabeu as the long-term successor to current number one Iker Casillas and despite the reigning European champions bringing in Keylor Navas in the summer, it seems they are still interested in De Gea.
As one of our punters notes, United will want that new, long-term deal signed by the player as soon as possible in order to ensure his future at the club, or at the very least secure a huge fee for him should an exit eventually be on the cards.
Manchester United fans. Do you really believe that Victor Valdes will be content as a number two? Has he been brought in to become number one next term? Let us know your thoughts below.
