The Spanish goalkeeper wants to leave Old Trafford and has refused to extend his contract with the Red Devils, meaning that as it stands he will either move this summer or walk away for free next year.

Manchester United are willing to let the latter happened after their failed move for Sergio Ramos, but could budge if a massive transfer offer is made.

The news comes just days after De Gea's girlfriend was heard saying after giving an interview in Spain that a move to the Bernabeu could be close.

Spanish journalist Guillem Balague summed up the whole saga in one tweet this morning, admitting that the none of the parties involved are anywhere near coming to an agreement. He wrote: "United saying de Gea will stay. Real Madrid having second thoughts as they don't want to spend over €25m. De Gea circle think he will go..."

Do you think Van Gaal has made the right decision to drop De Gea?
