Man Utd Star Herrera Hints Real Madrid Transfer Target David De Gea Could Quit This Summer

Red Devils superstar Ander Herrera has now admitted that David de Gea’s future at Manchester United is uncertain.

The Spanish goalkeeper 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.

Real Madrid hierarchy have now reignited their interest in De Gea after they failed to convince Thibaut Courtois, who made it clear that he wants to stay put at current Premier League leaders Chelsea.

And now the Spanish giants want to lure away the Spain No1 back to his homeland in order to replace Keylor Navas.

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.

Real Madrid boss Zidane, who is known to be fond of the Man Utd superstar, is keen on securing his services in the summer.

And now his club and international teammate Hererra has admitted that his friend could be on his way out of Old Trafford in the summer.

The Man Utd duo are now on international duty for Spain ahead of a World Cup qualifier with Israel on Friday, before locking horns with France in a friendly clash on Tuesday.

When asked about De Gea’s anticipated move to Real Madrid, Herrera failed to assure that the Spanish keeper will stay put at Old Trafford.

The 27-year-old said: “I tried not to bring up the De Gea to Real Madrid topic.”

“It’s difficult for him to one day be at one place, and then to be at another the next.”

“He learned a lot from this. It has made him more mature. I want him to be the one defending Manchester United’s goal.”

“Hopefully it will be like that, but anything can happen in football.”
