Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has told the clubs number 1 goalkeeper, David De Gea, that he is free to leave for Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.
This was reported by top Spanish newspaper, Marca. In the report, Marca said that Mourinho has made it clear he will not keep any unhappy player at Old Trafford ahead of next 2017/2018 football season.
It can be recalled that Spanish National team goalkeeper, David De Gea came within seconds of a deadline day switch to the Bernabeu in the summer of 2015, but the transfer collapsed in the last minute.
While Mourinho is apparently willing to let the goalkeeper leave, he will not accept less than what he believes to be their market value.
Real Madrid are looking for a new No1 this summer and have made De Gea their prime target. The La Liga giants are are also monitoring Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois and AC Milan’s Gianluigi Donnarumma.
But any move from the Spanish giants would have to be in the region of €60million.
