According to the reports from El Confidential, Manchester United have agreed to sell David De Gea to Real Madrid for a reported fee of £28.6million.
According to El Confidential, De Gea is set to pen down a 6-year contract with £2.5million-a-year salary package.
Real Madrid have been forced to make a move for De Gea after Iker Casillas has allegedly agreed to join FC Porto in the summer and Kyler Navas is nursing his hand injury and will be unavailable for over 3 weeks.
Real have been tracking De Gea for last 12 months and were unable to reach to a conclusive price. United were holding firm on De Gea’s valuation of £32.5million, however, the player is already in last year of his contract, United have settled to lower the fee slightly and agree a £28.6million transfer fee.
United and Real are also locked over a deal to bring Sergio Ramos to Old Trafford. According to several reports in Spain, Ramos has decided to say his good bye to Santiago Bernabeu and is only keen on moving to Manchester United.
Real Madrid look certain to sign De Gea regardless of Ramos signing for the Red Devils or not. Now the only thing that remains is for United to find an able replacement for the departing goal keeper.
Names like Fernando Muslera, Hugo Lloris and Joan Oblak have been discussed as probable candidates, however there have not been any concrete bids made for these goal keepers.
De Gea is currently with United’s squad ahead of their pre-season training and is expcted to pack his bag and leave for Madrid in coming days.
