Real Madrid can match £30m release clause to sign Man United goalkeeper

Manchester United star David de Gea could still leave to Real Madrid in the near future after it was revealed that there is a £30million buy-out clause in his contract, Express reports.

De Gea was heavily linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu during the summer, with the two clubs eventually agreeing on a £29million transfer on deadline day.

However, the move failed to materialize after paperwork was not submitted to the Spanish Football Association in time of the La Liga deadline, which saw the 24-year-old stuck at Old Trafford.

The club and De Gea therefore held talks over his future, which ended with the goalkeeper signing a new four-year deal.

But, it looks as if the former Atletico Madrid shot-stopper demanded that his new contract includes a £30million release clause, leaving the door open for Real to try and sign him once again either in January or at the end of the campaign.

De Gea made 43 appearances in all competitions, keeping 14 clean sheets.
