Manchester United could lose first-team star to Real Madrid

Published 1 Comments

Real Madrid are interested in signing Manchester United's David de Gea, according to Spanish newspaper El Confidencial.

Carlo Ancelotti is said to be keen on bringing in a new shot stopper in the summer as Iker Casillas' future at the Santiago Bernabeu is said to be unclear.

Reports suggest the La Liga giants are looking to sign either former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper De Gea or Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois in the summer.

Real Madrid will have to spend big if they are to entice the aforementioned custodians away from Manchester United and Chelsea respectively.

The Red Devils forked out £18.9million on De Gea in 2011 in hope that he could be the long-term successor to Edwin van der Sar.

De Gea has grown into an important member of Manchester United's first team and is said to be close to signing a deal to extend his stay at Old Trafford.

However De Gea is thought to not be against sealing a move to Real Madrid - despite the fact that he has close ties with Atletico Madrid.
