David De Gea Man Utd goalkeeper reveals how happy he is amid Real Madrid transfer talk
Manchester United star David De Gea keen on joining Real Madrid at the end of the season
The 27-year-old is in his seventh season at Old Trafford but his wish to return to Spain at some point is well known at the Theatre of Dreams. De Gea was inconsolable after a move to the Bernabeu collapsed on deadline day in 2015 and – though he signed a new deal a fortnight later – his wish to join Los Blancos has never diminished. Jorge Mendes, De Gea’s agent, promised him he would broker a move to the club at some point in the goalkeeper’s career and De Gea believes he’s at the right age to make the move, according to Spanish outlet El Confidencial.
De Gea has long proved himself as, arguably, the world’s best goalkeeper since then and Real Madrid have made repeated moves to try and bring him back to the Spanish capital. Infamously, only a faulty fax machine prevented a deadline-day move in 2015.
The 27-year-old is out of contract at the end of next season, although United have the option of an additional year, and Madrid president Florentino Perez is sure to be in the market for a new goalkeeper amid his side’s struggles.
But de Gea is not talking like a man who is on his way to the 12-time Champions League winners this summer.
“Yeah, time flies by doesn’t it?” he told Premier League productions when asked how quick his seven years at United have gone
Madrid are looking to replace Keylor Navas and a move for Athletic Bilbao ace Kepa Arrizabalaga appears dead in the water after the stopper signed a new deal with the club. That decision hasn’t gone unnoticed in De Gea’s camp and there’s a sense that if he doesn’t make the move this summer it may never materialise.
