Man United set their terms for David De Gea sale: This is what Real Madrid need to happen


MANCHESTER UNITED would demand at least double the world record transfer fee for a goalkeeper to part with David De Gea this summer, according to reports.

Manchester Unitedg hope to keep the Spain No.1 beyond this season but Real Madrid have stepped up their interest.

Reports in Spain this week claimed that De Gea has a £52million buyout clause and Madrid were poised to activate it at the end of the season.

However it has now emerged that that is not the case and United would only consider selling De Gea should they fail to qualify for the Champions League and a bid of more than £66m was made.

David De Gea is on Real Madrid’s radar as they plot a move for another goalkeeper

Gianluigi Buffon is the world’s most expensive goalkeeper and moved to Juventus for £33m in 2001, but United consider De Gea’s price to be double that, according to the Daily Mail.

De Gea has two seasons left on his United deal, and the club have the option to trigger a third, having signed a new contract in 2015 shortly after a move to Madrid fell through at the 11th hour.

And United are relaxed about the situation and believe De Gea will remain at Old Trafford next season.

United are charging towards the Champions League places in the Premier League and currently sit just four points behind Liverpool in fifth with two games in hand.

They are also in the quarter-finals of the Europa League and face Anderlecht next month.

A top four place or winning the Europa League would mean a return to the Champions League and should be enough to convince De Gea to stay with Jose Mourinho guiding the club back towards the elite.

David De Gea has been in excellent form for United again this season

De Gea has been in excellent form for United again conceding just 23 goals in 27 games with only Tottenham and league leaders Chelsea conceding fewer – both with 21 – and will be in the running to win the club’s player of the year for a fourth season running.

Real Madrid however do want to sign a new keeper this summer and if De Gea is unavailable are set to turn their attention to Thibaut Courtois or AC Milan youngster Gianluigi Donnarumma.
