Man Utd’s £43m Price-tag: Reds Are in Real Danger of Losing £200,000-a-week Man
Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is one of a number of stand-out Premier League goalkeepers being targeted by Real Madrid, according to reports.
The Daily Telegraph say Madrid are in the market for a new keeper, with De Gea, Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois and Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris all being considered as replacements for Keylor Navas.
Meanwhile, Spanish outlet Diario Gol believes United have slapped a £43 million price tag on the world-class ‘keeper.
De Gea is currently on £200,000 a week at Old Trafford but sixth-placed United are again facing a battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League – a battle that, if they lose, will encourage Madrid to swoop for the Spain international.
The 26-year-old has once again been a rock for United at the back, keeping nine clean sheets in 24 Premier League appearances this term, according to Squawka.
United’s No 1 almost joined Madrid on deadline day in the summer of 2015 but a broken fax machine scuppered the move.
Madrid are currently serving a transfer ban but that will expire at the end of this season.
