Man Utd on brink of agreeing £15M deal for Atletico Madrid No1 De Gea

Manchester United are closing in on a deal for Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David De Gea.

The Times says talks between the two clubs for De Gea are at an advanced stage, though it remain uncertain as to whether the 20-year-old will make a switch in January or play the rest of the season in the Primera Division.

United are hoping to sign De Gea for around £15 million.

The youngster would arrive as the club's new No1 to succeed 40 year-old Edwin van der Sar.

De Gea is tipped to be the first of two keeper signings United make in the New Year.
