Former Real Madrid president claims that there is deal for Man United star

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has claimed that there is a deal in place for David de Gea this summer, according to reports from talkSPORT.

De Gea was heavily linked with a move to Real in last year, with the transfer saga lasting all summer until the deadline.

And it was reported that the La Liga giants and United came to an agreement over his departure, only for the move to be scuppered due to late paperwork.

Blame was pointed by both clubs on who was at fault, and only two weeks later the Spain international signed a new Red Devils contract that is supposedly set to keep him at the club until 2019.

However, Calderon, who was in charge of Los Blancos from 2006-2009, revealed that a deal for De Gea is still on the table despite the impressive form of the club’s current number one Keylor Navas.

“It was really weird what happened last [summer],” he said.

“[But] Keylor Navas is playing [well], like you saw last night [against Barcelona]. He’s doing that in many matches.

“It would be really strange if David De Gea came but no doubt he is one of the best and also he’s a Spaniard, which helps.

“Apparently there is some agreement. They had a deal from last [summer] for him to come but I can’t tell you [for sure] as I don’t have personal knowledge of that.”

De Gea, 35, has made 39 appearances in all competitions, keeping 16 clean sheets.
