Real Madrid ready to launch summer bid for David de Gea: report

by Marwan Harraz

Spanish giants Real Madrid seem to be unwilling to let go of their key transfer target in David de Gea and are set to return for him in the summer.

De Gea almost joined the La Liga club previously only to end up extending his Manchester United contract to 2019.

David has been a key figure since moving to Old Trafford from Atletico Bilbao, after initially overcoming some transition struggles.

The world-class goalkeeper has singlehandedly saved United crucial points in the past and has grown into one of the world’s best players.

The Madrid transfer notoriously failed due to a faulty fax machine but it appears as though the Spanish side are still willing to try to get their man.

According to the Mirror, Real Madrid are sniffing around David de Gea‘s contract situation as he yet to resign a new one which may yet leave United in a poor negotiating position come summer.

When the transfer window opens in 2018, De Gea will only have a year remaining in his contract and can opt to run it out, leaving the Red Devils to panic on the possibility of letting their top goalkeeper leave for free.

Zinedine Zidane is clearly still an admirer and seems to be willing to play the waiting game in order to finally secure a player in the prime of his life.

Jose Mourinho meanwhile, will have to do everything he can to somehow once more convince the Spaniard to stay at Old Trafford.

Perhaps a title win may nudge David into renewing his contract and may be Madrid’s season unravelling will do enough to put the goalkeeper off from leaving.
