Bellamy: Only matter of time before Man Utd keeper De Gea joins Real Madrid

Craig Bellamy insists David de Gea's long-awaited move to Real Madrid will happen in the summer.

The former Welsh international, working as a pundit at Sky Sports, described the Manchester United No1 as “a real top goalkeeper" and claims Real Madrid, who have not splashed the cash in recent memory, will do so for the Spanish international in the off-season.

"Usually every top club has a rebuild and maybe it has been a little bit more overdue with Madrid because of the success they have had in the Champions League," says Bellamy.

"But I see De Gea being a huge part of that and Real Madrid do spend money, they always have done, they have been quiet over the last few years.

"So probably due to the fact that it will take a huge fee to get him and prise him away from Man Utd, I would be shocked if he did not go."
