Man United transfers: David De Gea sold to Real Madrid in £29m deal, claims journalist

Guillem Balague says Real Madrid have sealed the signing of David De Gea from Manchester United in a £29m deal

Manchester United have agreed to sell David De Gea to Real Madrid and bring in goalkeeper Keylor Navas in a £29m deal, according to Guillem Balague.

De Gea’s future has been a relentless source of speculation all summer, with Real Madrid constantly linked with a big-money move for the Spain international.

Now, however, it appears that a deal has finally been concluded, if Spanish football expert Balague’s latest updates on Twitter are to be believed.

De Gea hasn’t featured for United in their opening five Premier League games of the season amid continued talk of a potential switch to the 10-time European champions this summer.

De Gea moved to Manchester United from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and was widely acclaimed at United’s star man last term as the side secured Champions League qualification.

The 6ft 4ins stopper has recently forced himself into the Spain line-up since taking over from record appearance maker and former Real skipper Iker Casillas between the sticks.
