One month to go until the 2015 summer transfer window shuts and De Gea is still a Manchester United player. Real Madrid wanted to avoid this, but the British club aren't making things easy by asking €40 million to let De Gea walk away from the Old Trafford. They obviously have every right to do so since the player is under contract, so should Real Madrid spend a little more on the player?

United seemed reluctant to sell De Gea, but they will now accept a €40 million offer from Real Madrid, according to Marca.

The goalkeeper made his pre-season debut with a 3-1 win against FC Barcelona yesterday, because he missed United's first two games. "I hope De Gea stays, but you never know", said manager Louis Van Gaal after the match. If the transfer happens, both teams will need to make moves in the market -- United should sign a replacement and Real Madrid will need to sell either Navas or Casilla --, so time is running out for the clubs.
