Manchester United star has been under the radar of Real Madrid for a long time. Here’s what he has to say about the speculations regarding a potential move.
In a recent report by the Spanish outlet Diario Gol, it has been claimed that the La Liga giants Real Madrid are seeking a goal keeper to strengthen their defence in the summer transfer window. They have a good goalie in Keylor Navas but his on and off performance has led the Los Blancos to look for options.
Real Madrid had been looking for Manchester United’s ace, David de Gea for a long time. He was very close to a move to Santiago Bernabeu a few years back and has always been interested to play for the 13 time Champions League holders. Also, the club’s former boss Zinedine Zidane was also a great admirer of the Spaniard and was keen to get him in the star studded lineup.
De Gea was in tremendous form for the Red Devils this season, winning the Premier League Golden Glove award as well as the club’s Player of the Year. Here’s what he has to say for a his future ahead.”I’m always calm, the important thing now is to start the World Cup on June 15th,” said De Gea prior to Spain’s 1-1 friendly draw with Switzerland on Sunday.The most important thing right now is to do well in Russia, have a good role and do things in the best possible way. Future? I’m happy where I am, happy. Now, very focused on the national team.”
It is to be seen if Real Madrid is able to get his pen to paper in this summer transfer.
Author’s Take :
David de Gea is probably the best goal keeper in the world right now and Real Madrid are fully aware of that. They would want to get him into the team as soon as possible. On the other hand, Manchester United would try everything to not let the star go. It will depend on Real Madrid’s new manager as well. De gea was keen to work with Zidane but now that he’s gone, he’d be tentative for a move ahead.
