Manchester United might be forced to sell their goalkeeper David de Gea to Real Madrid in the summer with the club and the Spanish star yet to reach an agreement over a new contract.
According to the Guardian, the Premier League club could authorise his sale to the Spanish giants this summer as they will risk losing him for nothing the next summer with the player entering his final 12 months of contract this July.

“United do not want to lose De Gea but the club remain in deadlock with the goalkeeper over the terms of a new contract,” the report says. This coupled with the goalkeeping situation at the Santiago Bernabeu has fuelled the transfer rumours around the Spanish custodian.
Real had signed Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea last summer, but the Belgian has failed to win the trust of his new manager Zinedine Zidane who played his son Luca in Real’s 3-2 win over Huesca last Sunday.
Keylor Navas, meanwhile, looks to be Zidane’s first choice goalkeeper at the moment.
The Guardian further names Alexis Sanchez, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Marcos Rojo and Matteo Darmian among the players who are set to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season.
