Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, has fuelled speculation that he will be making a move to Real Madrid.
The 27-year-old star, who is regarded by many as the best goalkeeper in the world, recently said that his “heart is in Madrid”, where he was born. His two children also live in Madrid, with his partner, Spanish singer and actress, Edurne.
The La Liga giants have been interested in De Gea for many years, and almost signed him in 2015. However, the proposed deal collapsed on deadline day after the paperwork was filed too late.
According to Spanish media, De Gea remains the club’s top priority this summer.
Real Madrid’s current goalkeeper, Keylor Navas, was linked with Liverpool in the January transfer window, and Los Blancos are concerned that he will leave the club and will need to find a replacement.
Meanwhile, De Gea will reportedly demand at least £375 000 a week to sign a new deal to stay at Manchester United.
