They say a fee of €30-35m will be paid for De Gea and that he’ll be signed within the next few years and will become a Real Madrid player.
Part of the negotiations have included Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas who could be used as a makeweight in the deal which would see him go the other way to Man United.
The De Gea saga has been going on all summer long with United standing firm on the fact he would not be sold unless Real Madrid met their valuation. Now, if reports from Spain are correct, that has been met.
United fans will be furious to see De Gea leave the club, especially at such a late stage in the transfer window because it means there is absolutely no certainty as to who the No.1 will be this season if De Gea goes.
