It will all be official soon. Real Madrid and Manchester United have reached an agreement over David De Gea's move to the Spanish capital, club sources told Managing Madrid. Furthermore, other Spanish media like COPE or Marca are also reporting the deal.

Real Madrid will pay around €30 million for the goalkeeper and they will now talk to Keylor Navas to see if the Costa Rican is willing to join United. The British club would be interested in Navas and that would made the deal even easier now that it is all but official.

This was destined to happen after De Gea made clear that he was not going to sign a contract extension with United. The British club were forced to negotiate if they did not want to see the player leaving as a free agent next summer.

Expect the deal to be confirmed in a few hours, depending on Navas' willingness to join United.
