De Gea ready to leave Man Utd for Real Madrid

David De Gea is said to be unhappy with life at Manchester United and ready to return to Spain with Real Madrid, who are seeking a long-term replacement for Iker Casillas, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

De Gea has been at United a little over a year following his move from Atletico Madrid for more than £18m, but the 21-year-old has struggled to impose himself at Old Trafford. De Gea has been routinely dropped by Sir Alex Ferguson, with Anders Lindegaard making a consistent challenge for the spot as first-choice goalkeeper.

Ferguson left De Gea out of the side as recent as the early stages of this season after De Gea erred against Fulham, allowing the Cottagers a way back into a match that should have been wrapped up comfortably. De Gea has since returned to the side but finds his position constantly under threat from Lindegaard.

Away from football and De Gea’s girlfriend, a Spanish pop star, splits her time between England and Spain, which the Telegraph suggests is a contributory factor to his unrest.

Ferguson and United’s experienced goalkeeping coach, Eric Steele, have not lost faith in De Gea as a long-term prospect but neither have observers in Spain, including at Real Madrid, with De Gea rumoured to have informed his agent, Jorge Mendes, of his wish to return home.
