David de Gea’s protracted move to Real Madrid may not be the most lucrative transfer of the summer window but it is likely to be one of the biggest given the respective sizes of the two clubs involved.
It is widely expected that De Gea will return to the Spanish capital after four years as a Manchester United player, with the position of his current employer weakened somewhat by the fact he has just a season remaining on his contract.
De Gea has yet to publicly confirm that he wishes to leave Manchester United for Real Madrid, however, the chaps over at talkSPORT have imagined what it might be like were the goalkeeper to let his feelings be known.
Among a multitude of reasons for De Gea to pursue this transfer are Wayne Rooney’s body odour and childlike behaviour, the lack of quality in the Manchester United defence, with Jonny Evans a particular target for his ire.
We expect that a couple of these might not be too far away from the truth. Well played, talkSPORT.
Meanwhile, the latest reports on this proposed deal between Manchester United and Real Madrid suggest a fee of £22.1 million has already been struck and that it is only a matter of time until the 24-year-old moves to the Santiago Bernabeu.
So desperate have Manchester United been to keep De Gea at Old Trafford that they were willing to increase his salary to an enormous £200,000-per-week but, alas, it would appear his mind is made up.
