De Gea tells Man Utd pals he's joining Real Madrid

Real Madrid are confident David de Gea will quit Manchester United for them. The Daily Mail says the Spanish giants have held two meetings over summer transfer policy this week and sources close to the club have confirmed that president Florentino Perez is sure that De Gea will leave Old Trafford for a price-tag in excess of £25million.

United are still fighting to keep their goalkeeper and will not comment on the state of play.

The Barclays Premier League club have offered De Gea a British record deal for a goalkeeper of £200,000-a-week to try to tempt him to stay and have still not heard officially from Madrid ahead of a transfer window that opens at the end of the month.

However Madrid believe De Gea will be their man once negotiations formally open and it is also understood that the 24-year-old has told friends at United that he may well be on his way to Spain.
