Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is willing to forego close to €3million-a-year by way of rejecting a new contract from his club and instead opting for Real Madrid.

That’s according to information in today’s edition of pro Madrid-based newspaper Marca, who once again lead with a De Gea-centric story as they look to ensure literally no stone is unturned in the saga.

Latest update

Today’s update focuses on the idea that a deal that would see De Gea move to the Santiago Bernabeu can still be found, despite the fact Real are flatly refusing to match United’s transfer demands of €40m.

Indeed it’s believed they won’t even consent to paying €35m, although still remain confident that they can get their man.

Quite where their optimism is coming from when United consider De Gea a key asset is unclear, but in any case supporters can expect plenty more on the matter.

United rejection

The crux of Marca’s timely rumour presents the theory that De Gea now has his heart set on a move to Real, and will snub the lucrative deal United are prepared to put before him so he can secure his dream switch back to his homeland.

Seemingly United will roll out a deal potentially worth €8.5m-a-year for De Gea, but the Spain international will still push for a move to the Bernabeu despite the fact Los Blancos’ offer only sits at €5.5m-a-year.

As we’ve already covered, De Gea stories are done to death at this point, so we’ll forgive you for thinking the topic is a little mundane. What can you do, right?

United fans, do you think De Gea is going to leave this summer? Would he be right to join Real? Let us know in the comments box below.
