In the last summer transfer window, Real Madrid and Manchester United negotiated until the last minute for David de Gea. Both clubs finally arrived to a deal but the fax arrived late and the goalkeeper had to stay one year more in Manchester. All the reports said that Florentino wanted to sign the Spanish goalkeeper and will do it in the summer of 2016 but things have changed until now.
Zinedine Zidane arrived to the Real Madrid and Keylor Navas was one of the best players in the season. Besides, the club lifted the 11th Champions League trophy and the Costa Rican goalkeeper was one of the best men in the competition. Now, it will be hard to tell the fans that Keylor Navas should leave despite his great season.
The French coach is also convinced that Navas is the best goalkeeper for Real Madrid right now. He also has the opportunity to count on Kiko Casilla, the second goalkeeper who has performed really well in the few games he could play.
According to Marca newspaper, Florentino Pérez has ruled out De Gea signing. The president is an admirer of De Gea but the signing will be really expensive for a position that is already covered in the team. Real Madrid could use De Gea’s money to sign other players like Paul Pogba.
On the other hand, De Gea is been always very polite when he talks about his future. Now he’s in France with the Spanish national team but he wanted to welcome José Mourinho, his new coach at Manchester United: “United needed a coach like Mourinho. He has a strong personality and a winning character. Signing him is a wise decision”.
De Gea was also asked about his possibilities to leave the club this summer: “I’m very grateful to Manchester United and I’m very happy there”. It looks like he’s going to stay longer than expected at Old Trafford but now the Red Devils have a team and a coach to fight for major trophies.
