Real Madrid tend to get their hands on whoever they point their fingers at.

And David de Gea seems no different as the United goalkeeper is set to move back to Spain to play for Real Madrid.

De Gea has been in excellent form over the last two seasons while Madrid and Spain number one Casillas has been criticised for both club and country.

FUELLING THE RUMOURS

De Gea seems to have added fuel to the existing rumours of him moving back to Spain by reportedly putting his Manchester home for sale for £2,750,000.

If reports are to believed, United's Player of The Year has already said his 'goodbyes' to staff and teammates at Manchester United and is Madrid bound. The player has also asked super agent Jorge Mendes to get the deal done quickly as he does not want to be part of the pre-season tour to the United States with Manchester United.

DE GEA'S REPLACEMENT 

It will be tough for Louis van Gaal and Manchester United to find a goalkeeper of De Gea's quality yet there are a few names which have been shortlisted to replace the Spaniard.

Victor Valdes, who joined United in the January window, is already at Old Trafford and will be looking forward to earning a place in the starting XI.

Petr Cech was an option but the Chelsea goalkeeper seems to be heading to Arsenal. Hugo Lloris is another player who could replace De Gea.

Lloris has expressed his wishes to play in the Champions League, which currently Tottenham cannot offer, and would be likely to jump ship if United come calling.

Also, Ajax's Jasper Cillessen is another name which has been floating the newspapers and was coached by Van Gaal himself in last year's World Cup.

POSSIBILITY OF THE TRANSFER HAPPENING

The De Gea deal was all but done until recently when a swap deal for Sergio Ramos started gaining heat. Sergio Ramos apparently is 'unhappy' at the Bernabeu as his contract was allowed to run into its final two years.

Ramos feels he's being undervalued at the club and wishes to move with Manchester United the preferred destination. That has somewhat stalled De Gea's switch and the transfer may take longer than De Gea and everyone else expected.
