Manchester United want Ramos and Navas in return for De Gea sale

Manchester United have demanded Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas and Spain defender Sergio Ramos in return for their keeper David de Gea who is a target for Real Madrid, according to reports.

De Gea, who signed for United in 2011, has a year left on his contract, but is at the top of Real Madrid’s transfer wish-list. To further fuel speculation Casillas has agreed a deal with FC Porto, meaning that De Gea's departure could be imminent.

United and Real deals

Real Madrid have a history of purchasing United players, buying David Beckham in 2003 and Cristiano Ronaldo in 2009. The Red Devils’ players are normally persuaded by the European giants to move to sunny Spain.

This time though Louis van Gaal isn’t going to give Real Madrid such an easy ride as he wants Ramos and Navas as bait if he is to let go of the league’s best goalkeeper.

Lofty demands

Ramos is reportedly of the opinion that he is being treated unfairly in Spain and has set his sights on Old Trafford as his destination. Navas meanwhile could also be persuaded to follow team-mate Ramos as De Gea’s arrival would see him drop down the pecking order.

Whatever happens Madrid will have to part with players and cash if they are to get their number one transfer target.

United fans, is Van Gaal asking too much in return for De Gea's services? Let us know in the comments box below.
