David de Gea’s move to Real Madrid dealt a massive blow

Real Madrid seem to have dropped their interest in Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

The Independent is reporting that Los Blancos have been put off by the stopper’s release clause, which stands at £39million.

De Gea must be questioning whether Madrid are serious about signing him, particularly after last summer when a deal fell through at the last hour.

Madrid blamed an administrative error on that occasion, but this time, it seems they won’t be bidding for him at all, at least not anytime soon.

Yet, there may be more to their withdrawal than meets the eye.

The Spaniard recently expressed his admiration for new United boss Jose Mourinho and it seems he is looking forward to working with the three-time Premier League winning boss.


Real may have realised they are not going to tempt the 25-year-old away from Old Trafford, especially as they are struggling to dominate La Liga.

The only concern for United would be that De Gea could move in order to play Champions League football next season as the Red Devils only qualified for the Europa League.

With Mourinho in charge, however, it shouldn’t be long before United are back where they belong – and it looks like De Gea is all too aware of that.
