Real linked with de Gea again

Real Madrid have once again been linked with a move for Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

The Spaniard only signed a new long-term deal at Old Trafford in September worth £375,000 a week, but Real manager Zinedine Zidane has identified him as the ideal man to take over from former Chelsea stopper Thibaut Courtois in the Real goal.

And, with Dean Henderson set to return from his loan spell at Sheffield United at the end of the season, and unlikely to be content with a place on the bench next campaign, United may be tempted to cash in on the 29 year old, although it may cost the La Liga side up to £70 million to sign him.

De Gea was born in Madrid, and played for Real’s city rivals Atlético before joining United in 2011. He famously almost joined real in 2015, but the deal collapsed because the paperwork was not completed on time.
