David De Gea could still be heading to Real Madrid this Summer according to the latest reports, despite the Spanish club’s recent transfer ban.
The Independent on Sunday notes:
“Real Madrid still plan to sign Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea this Summer despite having a FIFA transfer ban imposed on them on Thursday. “
The Independent claims that the Real Madrid hierarchy are so confident that an appeal against their transfer ban will be successful they’ve decided to press ahead with their plans to sign De Gea this Summer.
News that the Spanish giants are still determined to pursue the United keeper will come as a massive blow to Louis Van Gaal and Reds everywhere as the last thing the club needs this Summer is the task of replacing arguably the best goalkeeper on the planet.
When De Gea signed a contract extension last Summer it was widely thought a get-out clause was inserted to allow an eventual move to Real Madrid to go through without United missing out on large transfer fee for the player who recently reached 200 games for the Reds.
News of Real Madrid’s transfer ban for breaching FIFA rules had many Reds hoping that would put a stop to their pursuit of De Gea but now that doesn’t seem to be the case.
