Real Madrid President Florentino Perez is still interested in taking Manchester United Spanish goal keeper David De Gea to Real Madrid.
Real Madrid and Manchester United were involved in one of the toughest transfer sagas in recent times.
United boss Louis Van Gaal has reiterated his stance that his number one goal keeper is not for sale, but the Spanish goal keeper was keen on securing a deal to Real Madrid without offending the united fans.
The United hierarchy have named their asking price telling Real Madrid to meet the goalkeepers buyout clause but the Madrid hierarchy were playing smart with the hope that the United hierarchy will sell the goalkeeper to them or risk losing him for free because the goalkeeper was in the last year of his contract and would leave under the BOSMAN rule.
Real Madrid later proposed a swap deal deciding to send Kaylor Navas plus cash for David Degea’s services which was later accepted by Manchester United only for the deal to fail to materialise at the last minutes because all necessary documents didn’t get to the Spanish FA befeore the transfer window closed.
The transfer window closed and Degea signed a new contract to the disappointment of Real Madrid President and Perez is not giving up hope of landing his number one priority. Kaylor Navas has been very impressive so far this season for Real Madrid breaking the Real Madrid record for clean sheets, a record that has stood for 113 years. The Costa Rican goal keeper is the first goal keeper to keep three clean sheets at the start of the league season.
United have successfully tied Degea to a new deal and would be in the commanding position should Real come to bid for David Degea. Perez would have to meet the buyout clause stipulated in the goalkeepers contract or forget about signing the United shot stopperFollow Football News Arena on Facebook and Twitter for the latest transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from across the major Leagues in Europe and around the World.
