Real Madrid have wanted to buy David De Gea for a long. Real tried to recruit a Spanish goalkeeper back in 2015, but the transfer was not completed, and De Gea’s career was back at Manchester United.
According to the latest reports, the head coach of Los Blancos Zinedine Zidane is particularly keen on the Spanish goalkeeper. Zidane wants him to join the team in the summer of 2020 instead of Thibaut Courtois and become the number one goalkeeper.
According to the latest news, Los Blancos are ready to offer a six-year contract to David De Gea.
The 29-year-old has extended his contract with the Red Devils in September. According to it, David should stay at the club until the summer of 2023. David receives a salary of 375,000 pounds a week.
De Gea’s salary is quite high. So, Real are one of the few clubs that can pay a player that much. According to reports, Real Madrid are going to pay 70 million pounds to buy David.
An exciting part of De Gea’s current contract
According to reports from AS, during the upcoming transfer period, Real Madrid will have the best chance of adding David de Gea. The reason is that there is one interesting clause in his contract with Manchester United.
According to the source, last year, while extending his contract with Manchester United, De Gea included a clause in it that would allow Real Madrid to buy him for 50 million euros next year. However, it should be noted that this clause is valid until June 15 and, if desired, the royal team will have to add a goalkeeper exactly at this period of time.
Recall that last year, De Gea was very close to moving to Real Madrid. But finally, the deal between the clubs failed on the last day of the transfer period.
