Manchester United set to lose star man to La Liga giants
Manchester United are edging ever closer to losing David De Gea according to Don Balon, who think Real Madrid are still determined to land their man.
Jorge Mendes is reportedly pushing the move through, with De Gea making it clear to United and Jose Mourinho that he wants to leave and dreams of playing for Real Madrid.
The news – if accurate – would come as a huge shock to the club, as it seemed Real Madrid were losing interest in the player and were looking for other goalkeeping targets.
At this point in the transfer window, it seems that United would try and keep their man for at least another season, given it would throw their plans into disarray, and would make Jose Mourinho furious.
United have of course landed two of their top targets this summer, and could well get a third in Ivan Perisic – but the chase for a holding midfielder is proving to be harder, given the club are targeting players who are already in the Premier League and thus at rival clubs.
