Manchester United are reportedly eyeing Claudio bravo as David de Gea’s replacement if the Spaniard decides to leave at the end of this season.

Bravo has been in excellent form for La Liga giants Barcelona this term, keeping 10 clean sheets from 17 La Liga appearances and now according to Spanish news outlet Don Balon, Manchester United are keeping their eyes on the Chilean shot-stopper. However, United will face a tough challenge from Barcelona as their first choice goalkeeper Bravo has £11.3million release clause in the contract and the Catalans are planning to rise up the amount.

The report also claims that the Red Devils have already prepared an ‘agenda’ and will make a move for the Barcelona goalkeeper if David De Gea decides to join Real Madrid.

Apart from Manchester United, Manchester City are also targeting the Chilean as the City hierarchy in not happy with goalkeeper Joe hart’s recent performance.

It is believed that Real Madrid are back in the race for the 25-year-old Spaniard and are quite confident they will eventually win the appeal against their upcoming transfer embargo imposed by FIFA.

The La Liga giants are reportedly so confident of avoiding the ban that they are ready to delay a move for De Gea until the summer.

The Spanish goalkeeper has played 19 Premier League matches this season, keeping an impressive eight clean sheets.

A summer of rumours linking the Spaniard to the Bernabeu outfit almost stopped when he agreed to join Real Madrid on transfer deadline day. However, the most talked about deal broke down because of a paperwork error and De Gea subsequently penned a new contract with Manchester United until atleast 2019 despite his troubled relationship with manager van Gaal. However reports suggest the new deal might have a release clause which can be triggered by Real Madrid at the end of the season.

After sitting out the opening six games of this season, David de Gea was called up for the important clash against Liverpool in September.
