Latest odds say Real Madrid will make improved bid for Man United star

| 01.06.2017

Manchester United fans will have breathed a huge sigh of relief last night when the club rejected an offer thought to be in the region of £65m from Real Madrid for David de Gea. But the latest odds suggest supporters will still be biting fingernails…

That’s because the Spaniard is as short as 4/6 for a move to the Bernabeu as early as THIS SUMMER.

Los Blancos have long been admirers of De Gea, although a transfer embargo has prevented them from doing any business in recent years – just as the 26-year-old has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the division.

Of course, that means his value has gone up substantially, and Madrid must have thought they stood a strong chance of landing their main summer target when they enquired about a £65m deal.

But United don’t think that’s enough.

It’s highly unlikely the Spanish giants will give up in their pursuit of the shot-stopper who’s featured in no fewer than four PFA Team of the Year line-ups.

Madrid will likely go all out this summer to snap up the finest talent on the planet – something they haven’t been able to do for the last few transfer windows.

And the odds our traders are offering this afternoon tell us there’s still a long way to go in the battle for De Gea’s signature.

But what do fans think? Could you put a price on De Gea’s head? And if he does go – who replaces him?
