Florentino Pérez has an obsession: he wants David De Gea dressed in white. This goal could be accomplished this summer after several years trying to get the Spanish goalkeeper to sign a contract with Real Madrid.
This Friday, the Spanish newspaper Marca published in the first page that Los Blancos have an agreement with David De Gea. According to this information, the Spanish goalkeeper has already asked Manchester United to leave the club in the summer and the Red Devils are already preparing a replacement in the goal.
Real Madrid are ready to pay a record transfer fee for a goalkeeper. Florentino Pérez will pay around €75M to Manchester United and De Gea will sign a five or six year contract with Los Blancos. The goalkeeper will earn less money in Madrid, because he was getting €12M per year after tax.
Real Madrid tried to sign David De Gea two years ago. Actually, Los Blancos finally reached an agreement with the goalkeeper and the club, but the paperwork arrived late, as they were negotiating on the 31st of August. Florentino Pérez has learnt the lesson and they want to close this deal earlier, so they don’t have these kind of problems.
José Mourinho already knows that David De Gea’s intention is to leave Manchester. The manager is not happy, but he has already found a replacement. Joe Hart, former Manchester City goalkeeper, is the chosen one. Currently, the British goalkeeper is playing on loan with Torino, but he’s willing to go back to his city.
After the poor season of Keylor Navas, Real Madrid managers are convinced that the club needs another goalkeeper. The Costa Rican has made many mistakes and Zinedine Zidane doesn’t think that Kiko Casilla is a real alternative. For this reason, the club needs another goalkeeper and De Gea, Courtois or Donnarumma were the best players in this position. Although many people inside Real Madrid think that the Chelsea goalkeeper is better than De Gea, Florentino prefers the Spaniard.
