Real Madrid set for De Gea compromise with Man United swap deal

Real Madrid are hopeful that a cash plus Keylor Navas offer will be enough to persuade Manchester United to offload David de Gea before the close of the transfer window, according to reports from Marca.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper’s future has been one of the major sagas of the summer so far, with his proposed switch back to Spain having dragged on.

Recent reports have claimed that United are expecting De Gea to stay put despite the rumours, however Real are keen to draft him in in the coming two weeks.

Reports reveal that the La Liga giants have no interest in matching the £28.2m figure Louis van Gaal’s side are demanding, with a total sum worth in the region of £24.6m more appealing.

To lower United’s demands the Spaniards are open to the idea of sending Costa Rican goalie Navas in the opposite direction, which could appeal to LVG as he would be a ready-made replacement.

The switch could also tempt the player himself, with Kiko Casilla’s arrival at the Bernabeu having increased competition for a starting berth.
