According to respected Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague, Real Madrid are preparing to trigger Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea’s release clause next summer after the Spaniard’s brilliant display against Liverpool in the Europa Cup Thursday night at Anfield.
Real Madrid tried to sign the 25-year-old Spanish international last summer but failed to get a deal done in time leading both clubs to blame each other for their failure.
‘Real Madrid will go for David De Gea again,’ Balague told Sky Sports.
‘There is already a buy-out clause in his contract at £30million.
‘Real will go for him at that price, that’s for sure.
‘People will question why there is a need to go for De Gea if Keylor Navas is playing so well.
‘But De Gea will be Spain’s No.1 for the next decade, that’s the quality of ‘keeper they’ll be getting.’
This of course will come as bad news for Manchester United fans, yet the writing has been on the wall for some time now that De Gea wanted to move back to Spain.
