It certainly seems that David De Gea will be a Real Madrid player next season, but there are several things that still need to be addressed before that. However, according to The Mirror, some of De Gea's teammates at Manchester United sure -- and afraid -- about his decision.

Sections of the United dressing-room are convinced the Spanish goalkeeper has made up his mind to leave after four years at Old Trafford. [...] Now some United stars have confided their fear that De Gea is Madrid-bound, a potentially huge blow given he has been arguably their best player this season.

How much would Real Madrid pay for De Gea? He has one year left in his contract, and while The Mirror reports that Manchester United could ask around €60 million for him, that price seems way high for a player who could join Real Madrid as a free agent 12 months after. Keep in mind that Toni Kroos was in that same situation and Real Madrid paid €25 million to get his talents away from Bayern.
