Manchester United have reportedly reached an agreement with Atletico Madrid over the signing of David De Gea.

The 20-year-old goalkeeper's future has been the subject of intense speculation in recent months amidst rumours that the Barclays Premier League leaders were monitoring his situation with great interest.

According to reports in Spain - as rehashed by - United have now had an offer accepted for the young shot-stopper as they look to find a replacement for the outgoing Edwin van der Sar.

TalkSPORT claims the valuation on De Gea's head is in the region of £22 million so - should the reports be true - United look set to break the British transfer record for a goalkeeper.

United have been linked with the Spain under 21 international for a number of months, and Atleti president Enrique Cerezo recently hinted that the Old Trafford club previously had an offer rebuffed.

"No-one has asked me about him [De Gea] this morning," said Cerezo.

"Ask Manchester [United] about it, but 18million doesn't seem much to me."

De Gea himself has been aware of the interest from the Red Devils and has admitted he would be open to a move to Old Trafford.

"I know Sir Alex Ferguson already has viewed me. After this season we should look at what happens and who wants to talk can come and talk," the Daily Mail quotes De Gea as saying.

"At Atletico, I owe them everything and I would love to stay, but on the other hand Manchester United is a great club."
