Manchester United Manager Van Gaal made the comment: De Gea is Spanish, a Spanish International, his Spanish parents have to fly out from Spain nearly every week, his girlfriend is Spanish & Real Madrid is a huge Spanish Football Club. The goalkeeper is very keen to return to Spain & Real Madrid has made him an offer. 

David De Gea has on his table a contract renewal proposal from Manchester Utd that is more, much more than his current contract, which he is not signing as yet. Along side is an alternative proposal from Real Madrid said to be around 5M€ per season, which is way below the United offer, but De Gea values returning "home" & a chance of a lifetime offer.

Real Madrid

Latest news is that Real Madrid has made a 20 M€ offer to Manchester United, which is obviously ridiculous. This figure will slowly go up as United is perhaps thinking more about a 40 M€ number in order to OK any transfer.

However, Spanish media discloses that the representatives of David De Gea has informed Real Madrid that before negotiations go any further, that the Spanish Football Club solve its goalkeeping problem: Iker Casillas.

De Gea does not want to arrive at a Club where there is a ongoing problem with current goalkeepers Iker Casillas & Keylor Navas. Said in other words, one of the two will have to go, with Casillas the more likely candidate. In fact, local media insiders have commented that Real Madrid will sit down with Iker Casillas in coming days to study "alternatives" & a "clean exit". The Spanish goalkeeper still has contract with Real Madrid & desires to be fully compensated financially if he is to leave prematurely. This is an issue as the "good-bye" payment is around 30M€, while the player also asks to leave without a transfer fee to make him more "attractive" to interested Clubs. 

While all this is in the air, De Gea will hold out at Manchester United because he too has a year more in his current contract. Iker Casillas exit seems to be the key.

Stay tuned!
