David De Gea has made up his mind and wants to join Real Madrid this summer.

The Spanish No 1 almost joined Real in 2015

According to reports in Spain, La Liga and Champions League double winners Real Madrid are ready to splurge £50million to rope in the Manchester United goalkeeper.

De Gea has displayed incredible form for the Red Devils in the last few seasons and has been a long-time target for La Liga giants Real Madrid.

Los Blancos almost signed De Gea in 2015, before the defending Champions League champions laid the blame on a faulty fax machine for failing to rope in the Spanish keeper from Man Utd at the 11th hour.

David De Gea wants to leave Old Trafford

Earlier this year Man Utd had warned the Real bosses that De Gea is not for sale, but recent reports in Spain claim that the La Liga giants wont bow down as they are ready to pay £50million to lure away de De Gea to the Spanish capital.

FootTheBall sources reveal that the La Liga champions are willing to offer the Spaniard a huge pay-hike than what he currently earns in Manchester United.

Spanish transfer outlet Don Balon have claimed that Real Madrid will leave no stone unturned as the club president Florentino Perez is desperate to sign the 26-year goalkeeper this summer.

De Gea has told agent Jorge Mendes to seal the deal with Real Madrid

Meanwhile, De Gea has told his agent Jorge Mendes that he wants to leave Manchester United to join Real Madrid this summer and has also ordered him to get the deal done as soon as possible, according to reports.

Sources also reveal that Real Madrid are planning to sell their current first-choice goalkeeper keeper Keylor Navas to Paris Saint-Germain, if they manage to land De Gea at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.

However, Man Utd have made it clear that De Gea is not for sale.

And Mourinho recently admitted that he wants to keep the 26-year-old shot-stopper at Old Trafford.

Mourinho wants to keep De Gea at Man Utd.

He said: “David is top in the world and obviously we want to keep the top in the world.”

But Mourinho also have Argentina No 1 Sergio Romero and Portugal’s keeper Joel Pereira in the squad.

It is believed that if De Gea forces a move away to the Spanish capital, the Red Devils will look out for Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak as a potential replacement for the Spaniard.

Man Utd can rope in Oblak as a replacement for De Gea.

Oblak had joined Atletico Madrid from Benfica in 2014 and since then he has displayed incredible form to establish himself as one of Europe’s top goalkeepers. He also bagged the La Liga Zamora award last season for conceding only 18 goals in 38 games and also found himself in the Champions League team of the year.
