Man Utd keeper De Gea back in Madrid…but only on vacation

David De Gea has flown back to Madrid sparking further speculation regarding his potential transfer to Real Madrid.


The Manchester United goalkeeper arrived in the Spanish capital on Thursday but insisted that he was merely back home for a vacation.

"I just came to relax," the 24-year old said.

"I'm on vacation. Everything is going well."

De Gea continues to be linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu despite the fact he has a £200,000 offer on the table at Old Trafford.

United are aware that the former Atletico Madrid keeper is eager to return to his home city but do not want to lose him for under the odds.

Recent reports suggest that the Red Devils are holding out for a fee in the region of £33million.
