David de Gea’s name is cropping up time and again regarding Real Madrid’s transfer targets.
It remains to be seen whether Zinedine Zidane brings in another goalkeeper to replace Keylor Navas, who to be fair to him, has only conceded 17 goals this season.
That makes Real the third best defence in La Liga, but it still seems likely that Los Blancos will return to Manchester United to make another bid for their long-term target at the end of the season now that their transfer ban has been lifted.
Not only is De Gea from Madrid, it may also be too hard to turn down the offer of Champions League football if United don’t make the top four.
The Red Devils are understandably reluctant to sell, but when the player himself was asked by AS, he gave an interesting perspective.
“The future nobody knows,” he said.
“The future is the future. I’m very happy here, it’s a great club. In England, football is enjoyed a lot.
“I’m not going to talk about that (Real Madrid’s interest). I‘m not going to talk about that subject now. I just have to keep focused on my club.”
That won’t fill United fans with confidence. Of course, the Spain number one doesn’t want to write off his chances of a big move, but it doesn’t sound like he’s too keen to completely commit himself to United either.
