Manchester United won't want to lose David de Gea for nothing

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United would look to cash-in on David de Gea if he made it clear to the club that he wanted to leave, according to the Daily Star.

Citing reports from the Telegraph, it has suggested that Spanish giants Real Madrid are prepared to wait to for the player's contract to run down at Old Trafford, as they look to bring him to the Bernabeu for free. 

There's no doubt about it, Manchester United wouldn't want to lose De Gea for nothing, with the 'keeper currently recognised as one of the best shot-stoppers in world football. 

Class of De Gea 

In fact, De Gea has arguably been the club's best player over the course of the past 18-months. The Spaniard was even named United's Player of the Year under David Moyes last term, whilst he's continued to excel under the Louis van Gaal regime. 

That's seemingly why the United hierarchy are desperate to keep him, with it being reported that the club are ready to offer him a stunning contract worth £140,000-a-week.

It now remains to be seen as to whether De Gea commits his future with the Manchester outfit or whether he will opt to leave the club in favour of a move back to Madrid. 

Of course Manchester United currently have the duo of Victor Valdes and Anders Lindegaard at their disposal, but De Gea is undisputedly recognised as the club's No.1 goalkeeper. 

Price tag 

It's understandable, though, that if the player wants to leave then United will look to secure a fee for his services. It's uncertain as to whether Real would be willing be willing to spend the £50 million that Manchester United reportedly rate him at. 

With the possibility of landing him for nothing the summer after, it's no wonder the Bernabeu giants are seemingly ready to wait for his signature. It's certainly a transfer saga that looks set to run on for some time yet.
