Breaking: Real Madrid agree to pay 35 million Euros for De Gea

Ritabrata Banerjee / 31 August 2015

Real Madrid and Manchester have reportedly struck a deal regarding Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea’s transfer. If reports are to be believed then Manchester United have agreed to sell David De Gea for a fee somewhere around 30-35 million Pounds. 

It was reported earlier that the officials of both the clubs held a meeting to discuss the future of David De Gea. Real Madrid were desperate to make the deal happen as they had time until midnight in Spain after which the transfer window closes.

Spanish media Marca’s tweet confirmed the news that a deal has been agreed between the two clubs, although a final announcement is pending.

The tweet read:

Imminent journalist Guillem Balague who is known to be a trustworthy source in Spain has also confirmed the news via twitter.

Balague’s tweet also has an important aspect to this deal which suggests that Real Madrid are willing to sell Costa Rican international goalkeeper Keylor Navas to bring in De Gea.

Navas has been instrumental so far in this season and was in fine form. So this come as a shocker to many fans of Madrid who wanted Keylor Navas to stay.


Another thing that could happen is Real might pay a marginally lesser amount to Manchester United and give them Keylor Navas in exchange. It is a known fact that Louis van Gaal admires Keylor Navas and he might warmly welcome the custodian into the side.

It will be a huge deal in favour of Manchester United as they would get a considerable amount of cash for a goalkeeper who is serving his final year in the contract and get a world class goalkeeper.

Sergio Romero so far has done a commendable job in United outfit but his vulnerability was exposed last evening when he had gifted Swansea City their winning goal.
