We always raise our eyebrows when the Catalan media writes news about Real Madrid. The chance of the article being written purposely to make the team from the capital look bad is pretty big, so you can’t simply believe it.
On Wednesday, newspaper Sport has a story about the Galacticos’ chase for David De Gea, claiming that Manchester United are already prepared for the next move.
According to the outlet, the Red Devils have already set a price for the goalkeeper next summer, and will demand at least €130m to let him go.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is said to have De Gea as his ‘big objective’ for the next season, after trying to sign the player for years. The goalkeeper himself would have an agreement to sign for the Spanish side already, but that won’t be enough if the clubs can’t find a deal.
Manchester United reportedly won’t make it easy for the Spaniard to leave, and won’t drop the price, even though his current contract is set to expire in 2019 (with the club having an option of a further year). The plan would also to offer him a new contract.
It’s just interesting how this news come right after De Gea’s renewal attempts being reported in England.
Would it be a perfect scenario for the Catalan papers to see Real Madrid being rejected once again?
