Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is set to hold talks with goalkeeper David de Gea about his future at the club, according to reports.
The Spaniard is tipped to move to Real Madrid in the summer as the European champions are determined to land de Gea, who has been their top priority for the past three years. According to Daily Mirror, Jose Mourinho has asked the Spaniard to contribute with the top form until the end of the season as Manchester United are determined to finish in top four in Premier League.
The Red Devils will also have Europa League in their minds as they are set to face Celta Vigo this Saturday in Europe’s second tier competition. The report further suggests that the club hierarchy is convinced that the Spaniard could leave the club in the summer and are currently eyeing potential replacements.
Manchester United are keen to keep hold off their star who has been their best player in the past couple of seasons. However, should Real Madrid force a move for de Gea, the Red Devils have already shortlisted Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak and AC Milan’s 18-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma!
It is believed that the 26-year old will draw the world record fee if Real Madrid is going to sign him this summer. He is considered as one of the world’s best and European champions are set to replace Keylor Navas for the upcoming season.
A fee of around £50 million is expected for de Gea and considering he did not have any release clause in the contract would leave Manchester United to get a strong hold off their transfer price. David de Gea still has two years left on his Manchester United contract and the hard stance by former manager Louis van Gaal has helped the club to keep him for a longer stay after Real Madrid were so close to signing him in 2015.
Spanish media outlet Marca has reported that Madrid has already agreed to personal terms with stopper but are yet to agree on a transfer fee with Manchester United.
