Craig Bellamy has said he would be quite shocked if Manchester United’s De Gea does not join Madrid in the future.
The Manchester United goalie has been linked with Madrid, after glowing performances with United.
De Gea was close to joining Madrid in 2015, but the transfer fell through and Bellamy believes the move will happen.
“He is the real deal and I have always felt that Real Madrid have been looking for him to be their number one for a number of years,” Bellamy told Sky Sports . “And it is just a matter of time before they get him.
“His footwork is brilliant, he anticipates as well, he can read forwards and if you watch, he makes a lot of his saves with his feet. He is incredible.
“He asks the forward so many questions when you are gunning down on him and he is a real top goalkeeper.”
