Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea could be presented as a Real Madrid player on Tuesday, according to AS.
The report claims that the Spanish giants are now extremely confident of securing the services of the Red Devils shot-stopper before the close of the transfer window.
In fact, the report goes on to claim that the United hierarchy are prepared to accept a deal in the region of €40 million for the Spaniard, however it appears that Real are only willing to spend as much €25m on the goalkeeper.

It remains to be seen, then, as to whether United and Real manage to come to an agreement over the talented 'keeper, but it now appears that the Spanish giants believe they will get their man in this transfer window.
De Gea, of course, has failed to feature under the Louis van Gaal regime this season, and will no doubt miss out as the Red Devils travel to Wales tomorrow to take on Swansea City.
It's a worry
There's no doubt about it, if De Gea departs Manchester late on in this window, then United fans may well worry about the goalkeeping department at Old Trafford.
Of course, the club have Argentine shot-stopper Sergio Romero between the sticks, but it's still far from certain as to whether he's good enough to star for the club for the long-term.
Will United have enough time to replace De Gea should he leave for the Bernabeu? Keeping Romero between the sticks will no doubt prove a risk.
