David De Gea has finally made his decision after months and months of speculations and cajoling as the 24 year old shot stopper has told the hierarchy at Manchester United that he wishes to join 10 time European champions, Real Madrid.
De gea has one year left on his Manchester United contract and if Manchester United don’t cash in on him now, he could leave for free next season. De Gea joined Manchester United for a record 24.4 million euros in 2011, a record for a goalkeeper then and has grown into one of the best shot stoppers in the game winning one league title and being named in the PFA team of the year twice. The player is however set to move back to his country after Real Madrid intensified their pursuit of the 24 year old who they see as a perfect replacement for Iker Casillas in the last 10 months. Manchester United now have their hands tied as they have to let the Spaniard go now but would make significantly less as Madrid would know they have the bargaining power as they can wait one season and land the former Atletico man for free.
Manchester United are already in the hunt for a new first choice goalkeeper as De gea gets set to join Van Nistelrooy, Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham and Gabriel Heinze as one of the huge Manchester United stars to join Real Madrid.
