According to Daily Star, the purported transfer of Spain and Manchester United Goalkeeper, David De Gea to Real Madrid may have stalled in recent times.
Real Madrid had actually been locked in serious talks with United for his signature in recent times, and it was even at some point rumoured that a deal for his transfer had been finalised. Manchester United, too, being somewhat certain of his departure, fueled such reports by recruiting 28 year-old Argentina shot-stopper, Sergio Romero as his replacement.
However, contrary to reports that the deal had reached advanced levels, recent findings reveal that negotiations have actually reached a stalemate, with both parties allegedly unwilling to shift ground regarding a vital factor in his contract.
The Red Devils are reportedly playing hard-ball, and are holding out for a world-record transfer fee, or an offer which would see Sergio Ramos move the other way to Old Trafford. The Real Madrid chiefs also appear to have their own considerations, and are reportedly unwilling to accede to any of United’s two options.
As it stands, with both parties firmly anchored in their different opinions, the player may eventually miss out on the move. Having sat out of United’s 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur, it now appears he may well don United’s colours at some point in this season.
