Man United Eager To Complete Transfer £200,000-A-Week Star, Personal Terms Agreed

With the full blown transfer saga of Raheem Sterling’s move to Manchester City coming to an end yesterday , perhaps it is now time for the other half of Manchester to put an end to one of its own. David De Gea’s desire to depart Old Trafford for the Santiago Bernabeu this summer has been no secret . Real are preparing for his homecoming themselves after bidding adieu to an all time great Madridista and their club captain in Iker Casillas. However, for one reason or the other , the move has been help up till now and with pre season fast approaching , United are visibly agitated at the slow pace at which negotiations are taking place.

Recent reports in the Daily Star have claimed that the Red Devils have now offered an ultimatum to De Gea’s representatives as well as the Real Madrid top brass that if they do not step up the transfer negotiations today, then they will not sanction a deal this summer and the 24-year-old will have to spend another year at Old Trafford. This is after earlier reports had claimed the player has agreed person terms on a four years contract worth £200,000 per week with Real Madrid.

De Gea is in the final year of his contract and should United force him to stay on, he will be able to depart on a free next summer.But that seemingly hasn’t stopped the club from making it clear to the Spaniard’s entourage that if he wishes to move this summer, he, along with the Spanish club , should get the transfer into motion today.

The Red Devils depart to America later today for their pre season tour of North America and United manager Louis van Gaal is unwilling to carry players who won’t be at his disposal next season. The crescendo of rumors regarding the completion of the move is at its pinnacle following these reports, with Real Madrid having landed themselves in no-man’s-land following San Iker’s departure and such potential concerns arising in the De Gea deal.

De Gea has been the standout performer for United in the last two seasons, with his virtuoso displays last season guiding United to a Champions League spot. His departure will be keenly felt by all at Old Trafford. However, the club are absolutely correct in their stance to sell before pre season, as that will give the incoming replacement plenty of time to settle him.
