Bellamy says only a matter of time before De Gea leaves Manchester United

David de Gea’s future has been a constant talking point ever since his move to Real Madrid from Manchester United collapsed.

The Spaniard, who has become one of the world’s best goalkeepers during his time at Old Trafford, was closing in on a switch to the Bernabeu in 2015.

The failure to send all the relevant paperwork by the deadline meant that the transfer never went through.

Since then, De Gea has been committed to the Red Devils and even signed a new contract at the North-West outfit.

Despite the shot-stopper staying dedicated to United, rumours have constantly swirled that Madrid will eventually get their man.

Craig Bellamy, who has previously played for Liverpool and Manchester City, believes that even though it has been almost three years since De Gea’s failed move to Madrid, it is “only a matter of time” before the Spaniard ends up at the Bernabeu.

During Sky Sports’ broadcast of The Debate, Bellamy said:

“He is the real deal and I have always felt that Real Madrid have been looking for him to be their No 1 for a number of years. And it is just a matter of time before they get him.

“His footwork is brilliant, he anticipates as well, he can read forwards and if you watch, he makes a lot of his saves with his feet. He is incredible. He asks the forward so many questions when you are gunning down on him and he is a real top goalkeeper.”
