Premier League giants Manchester United FC have reportedly offered their goalkeeper David De Gea a 14-million-per-year contract extension, however, La Liga giants and 12-time European Champions Real Madrid have seemingly requested that De Gea turns down the profitable deal offered by United, in order to confirm a move to the Bernabeu in the summer.
Following a terrible start to their La Liga season, Real Madrid is hoping to strengthen their squad and President Florentino Perez is all ready to bring in some new marquee players to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid, who currently find themselves 14 points behind their biggest rivals FC Barcelona in the La Liga table, have also been crashed out of the Copa del Rey in the quarter-final stage.
However, manager Zinedine Zidane is expected to be given some more time with the club in order to rebuild his squad in the summer and the French boss is currently hoping to bring in a new goalkeeper, who is at the top of his transfer priority list.
Spanish journalist Eduardo Inda has also additionally claimed that Real Madrid has reportedly contacted De Gea’s representatives and told them not to sign a new deal at the Old Trafford, which will see De Gea stick to The Red Devils for the next couple of years at least.
“Real Madrid has asked De Gea not to renew his with Manchester United.”– Inda told El Chiringuito TV.
Real Madrid, on the other hand, has not settled on a regular goalkeeper ever since the departure of their former club captain Iker Casillas and meanwhile, Keylor Navas has also been very inconsistent between the sticks, which has prompted Real Madrid to make a move for Manchester United’s top shot-stopper David De Gea.
There is also no surprise to the fact that De Gea himself wants to move back to his homeland of Spain within the near future, so maybe, a move to Real Madrid is still a huge possibility.
