Real Madrid agree to make De Gea richest goalkeeper transfer history

Real Madrid are ready to make David de Gea the richest goalkeeper transfer in history.

The Sun says Real will launch a world-record £60million raid to land De Gea this summer.

The Spanish giants desperately want De Gea and are ready to almost double the previous highest fee for a goalkeeper.

Real are willing to pay £60MILLION for the Manchester United keeper

And if they cannot bag the Manchester United No 1, they will target Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois as an alternative.

A Madrid source said: “De Gea is the top priority.

“We expect him to come this summer."

If the deal goes through, the fee will dwarf the current high for a keeper — £32.7m paid by Juventus to Parma for Gigi Buffon back in 2001.
