Journalist reveals Real Madrid raid on Man United seemingly ‘underway’

With the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern dreaming about the potential arrival of Real Madrid superstar James Rodriguez, it seems the two clubs may conduct even more business this summer. 

While the Colombian has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford over the last week or so, a report talking about Keylor Navas in Spanish publication AS drops what could be another big transfer line.

The aforementioned stopper is defended in the piece, though journalist Santiago Segurola hints Los Blancos’ raid on Old Trafford for David De Gea ‘seems to be underway’.

De Gea has been strongly linked with a move to the Spanish capital for what seems like an eternity now and infamously only saw a move collapse in 2015 as the result of a faulty fax machine.

Later on in the piece, Segurola suggests that the 26-year-old’s arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu is ‘taken for granted’ these days.

Though losing De Gea, undoubtedly one of the elite stoppers in the world, will be a big blow for local United fans, they hope arrivals such as Rodriguez could soften the blow.
