Manchester United in £30million move after Spanish giants give green light
By Spain correspondent Miguel de Souza
Real Madrid will return for David de Gea in the summer in a second concerted attempt to prise the goakeeper from Old Trafford, Football Insider sources understand.
The Spanish giants failed to sign the Manchester United No1 last August when a paperwork delay meant the deal collapsed in the final minutes of the transfer window.
But a release clause of around £30million was inserted in the contract De Gea signed in September.
Spanish source have told Football Insider that Real will make another push for the 25-year-old at the end of this season and are confident of getting their man.
Keylor Navas has had a fine season in goal for Zinedine Zidane’s team but De Gea is rated so highly by the Spanish giants that they are confident he can be their goalkeeper for the next decade.
