David de Gea's transfer to Real Madrid next summer is getting more likely day after day. Yesterday, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was asked about this possibility, and he did not deny it:

Everything is possible in the world of football. We want to keep him.

While it is true that de Gea is featuring as one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League, his loss would not be so traumatic for the Red Devils as they recently signed the former culé Víctor Valdés, who was probably doing better than de Gea before he got injured with Barça.

The arrival of the 24-year-old David de Gea to Real Madrid would likely be accompanied by the farewell of our captain Iker Casillas, who is already 33, that expressed a few days ago that he might be interested on a move to the Major League Soccer, while Keylor Navas would remain in Madrid as a backup.
