According to reports from AS, Real Madrid face a twelve-day deadline to activate David De Gea’s £39million release clause.
The Manchester United No.1 infamously came close to signing for the Bernabeu outfit last summer, only for the paperwork to miss the La Liga transfer window’s 11pm cut-off.
The Spain international went on to sign an improved contract with the Red Devils, but it’s believed to include a £39million release clause specifically for Real Madrid that the club are widely expected to activate this summer.
However, the clause expires on June 15th, meaning the El Clasico giants face a twelve-day deadline to ensure a deal – which could prove problematic with the 25-year-old currently preparing for Euro 2016 as part of Vincente del Bosque’s squad.
However, AS are incredibly confident that European champions will finally wrap up the arduous De Gea saga in time, claiming he’ll become a Real Madrid player ‘in a matter of days’.
