Man Utd boss Mourinho agrees De Gea Real Madrid move - identifies replacement

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is prepared to sell David de Gea to Real Madrid.

Mourinho and Real president Florentino Perez have been discussing De Gea's situation for some months and Don Balon says they've come to an agreement.

Thanks to their good relationship, Perez is prepared to meet De Gea's €70 million buyout clause - which has been a request from Mourinho.

Perez hopes to drive down the cash component by including James Rodriguez in the offer, though Mourinho isn't so sure about such an option.

As a replacement, Mourinho is ready to raid Barcelona for Marc-Andre ter Stegen - a move that is pleasing to Perez.

Mourinho's plans will upset Barca, which face the prospect of either upgrading the German's contract or selling him this summer.
