Real Madrid think they know when they are going to sign David de Gea from Manchester United - and it won't be until the end of the summer window.

The Spanish goalkeeper has turned down an offer worth £200,000-per-week to stay at Old Trafford and is pushing to join Real Madrid.

So far talked have lead nowhere, with Manchester United holding out for a world record fee for a goalkeeper or the offer of including Sergio Ramos in the deal.

According to Spanish sports newspaper AS, Real Madrid expect negotiations to go right up until the end of the summer transfer window because of Manchester United' in Sergio Ramos. They remain confident of getting the deal done still though.

The Spanish defender has reportedly asked to leave the Bernabeu with two years left on his contract. However Real Madrid President Florentino Pérez is holding out for a fee of around €65 million and Manchester United have only offered around £28 million. As it stands negotiations are at a standstill even though De Gea is said to have put his house up for sale.

The move does appear to be gathering pace and reports this morning suggest that the man De Gea could replace, Iker Casillas, is close to joining Porto.

Exit

But Manchester United are reportedly more than happy to let De Gea for nothing next summer if he doesn't sign a new contract rather than letting him join Real Madrid this time round.

Defeat

The former Atletico Madrid man has returned to pre-season training with the Red Devils although privately the powers that be at Old Trafford have conceded that they are losing the battle to keep hold of the Spanish international, who's been named the club's best player for the past two seasons.

Boss Louis van Gaal has identified a number of replacement targets including Hugo Lloris from Tottenham, however the Frenchman recently penned a long-term contract and will be difficult to lure away from White Hart Lane. Newcastle's Tim Krul has also been suggested as an option as has Jasper Cillessen of Ajax, although he will cost £18 million.
