A big question mark looms over the future of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea as the season gets towards its conclusion.
The Spanish international saw his move to the La Liga giants collapse in the last hours of the 2015 summer transfer window and the reports have suggested that Los Blancos will reignite their interest this summer.
The saying goes that there is no smoke without fire, and it seems like there is indeed something cooking up behind
the scenes. The recent comments from former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon have suggested that it’s a possibility that a deal already exists between two clubs over a potential transfer.
“It was really weird what happened last [summer],” he told the talkSPORT. “[But] Keylor Navas is playing [well], like you saw [against Barcelona]. He’s doing that in many matches.
“It would be really strange if David De Gea came but no doubt he is one of the best, and also he’s a Spaniard, which helps. Apparently there is some agreement. They had a deal last [summer] for him to come but I can’t tell you [for sure] as I don’t have personal knowledge of that.”
The 25-year old goalkeeper, who arrived at Old Trafford in a £17.8 million move from Atletico Madrid in 2011, signed a new four-year deal with the Red Devils earlier this season.
He has arguably been the best performer in Louis Van Gaal’s side this season, and his departure could prove to be a huge setback to United’s plans for next season. De Gea has won one Premier League title during his time with United and has been awarded club’s player of the season award for the last two seasons.
