If it wasn't clear already, calciomercato specialist Tancredi Palmeri has just reported that Real Madrid will go after Manchester United's David De Gea this same summer. Per that same report, Florentino Pérez himself made that decision and he is now determined to buy the goalkeeper now instead of waiting one year and sign him as a free agent.

David De Gea hasn't featured in a single Manchester United game since their season started, as manager Louis Van Gaal believes he isn't focused enough. It seems that the British club want to get at least €40 million for the goalkeeper and Real Madrid are offering €25 + Keylor Navas according to the latest reports from Spain, a deal that should also be attractive to United.

It seems that De Gea will be Madrid's goalkeeper this season, but it will not be easy to complete the deal as United are reluctant to see him walking away from the club.
