The David de Gea rumor mill has kicked off once again

David de Gea is one of the most highly-rated goal-keepers in the world of football and the Spanish shot-stopper indeed deserves all the praise that he has been getting for the past few years.

Manchester United is clearly struggling and this is evidenced by the fact that Jose Mourinho had to settle with a 6th spot finish in the English Premier League and during the previous 2015-16 season, United snatched the 5th position.

Finishing outside of the top 3 spots of the Premier League is something that a club like Manchester United does not enjoy as the English club has traditionally been one of the heaviest spenders and it has not changed as Manchester United offloaded around €180 million during the 2016-17 winter transfer window after signing Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

With so much cash being spent in highly-rated players, a 6th spot finish is a disappointing way to end the season.

Despite the recent disastrous seasons of Manchester United, one of the few players that has managed to stay above the rest and shine is David de Gea and he is once again being rumored to be in the radar of many clubs but the one that has been emerging most is Real Madrid.

During the 2015-16 season, Real Madrid almost managed to sign David de Gea but a delay in the transfer of some documents saw the transfer being cancelled and the Spanish club is once again attempting to secure the services of the 26 year old shot-stopper.

If rumors are to be believed, Real Madrid are preparing an offer involving Alvaro Morata and £25 million in order to attempt to sign David de Gea when the 2017 summer transfer window opens on July 1.

Alvaro Morata is a 24 year old youngster who can help solve some of the offensive problems that Manchester United has recently had with Wayne Rooney failing to score on a consistent basis as the English forward could only muster 5 goals in 25 Premier League appearances and the future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic still remains uncertain especially after his recent injury which will keep him out of the pitch for 7 more months.
