According to Spanish newspaper El Confidencial, everything is in place between Real Madrid and Manchester United to complete the transfer of David De gea.

El Confidencial claims that De Gea will sign a six-year contract worth £21.3m, significantly less than what United offered him to stay at Old Trafford.

David De Gea’x transfer saga is one of the most trending transfer stories in recent history with a tug of war between the two European giants.

United have agreed a £28.5m fee for the keeper; something which the Spanish paper considers as a coup for Red Devils chief Ed Woodward.

Jorge Mendes has been working on the deal which has been thrashed out in London.

El Confidencial report that De Gea will head to Madrid and complete the formalities of the deal, as soon as Manchester United make it official.

The 24-year-old has made it clear he wants to leave and has refused to sign a new contract at Old Trafford.

His current deal only has 12 months to run, so if United get £28.5m for the stopper it should be considered as a success.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas is rumoured to be leaving Santiago Bernabeu and De Gea will the successor of Saint Iker.

The 24 year old Spanish goalkeeper was a key performer for Manchester United last season and he will also be the number one goalkeeper for Spain in the future.

De Gea is a former player of Real Madrid’s city rivals Atletico Madird who moved to Manchester United in 2011 for a British record fee for a goalkeeper of around £17.8 million.

De Gea was voted Manchester United Players’ Player of the Year for two consecutive seasons in 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons.
