Odds even on David de Gea to join Real Madrid

It is not surprising that Real Madrid are in for David De Gea. Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas is getting booed by fans, and back up goalkeeper Keylor Navas just isn't good enough to step up.

The Manchester United stopper would be the perfect signing for Los Blancos this summer, and the acquisition of a world class keeper would put Carlo Ancelotti's side in a better position for next season.

De Gea has undoubtedly been the Red Devils' best player this season. For me, he's had more stand-out performances that any other Premier League goalkeeper. 

Sports betting company betfair now have the Spanish keeper's odds even to join Real Madrid. Although Manchester United will be reluctant to sell, if a deal for De Gea includes Gareth Bale then Louis van Gaal may have to consider any offers that come in.

De Gea is just 24-years-old, meaning he still has a decade of world class goalkeeping left in him at least. He has the potential to be as big as Peter Schmeichel for Manchester United, should he stay in England.

Manchester United signed the Spaniard from Real Madrid's city rivals Atletico Madrid in 2011, for a fee believed to be around £17 million. They will be looking for more than double their original investment for a keeper who has the potential to be the world's best.

Old Trafford fans will want De Gea to stay next season, but with the odds now even for a transfer to be done by September 3, it is looking more and more likely that he will be leaving the Theatre of Dreams.

Manchester United fans, would you father have Gareth Bale or David De Gea in you starting line up next season? Let us know in the comments!
