Jose Mourinho has placed a £100m price tag on Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea amid interest from La Liga giants Real Madrid, according to reports.

The Daily Star is reporting that Manchester United want £45m plus Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata for the Spain international in the 2017 summer transfer window.

The same article states that Mourinho is responsible for conjuring the goalkeeper’s gigantic transfer valuation as the Manchester United boss looks to bolster his squad this summer.

De Gea has been heavily linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid over the past few seasons but Manchester United have managed to keep the Spain international in their ranks.

The Red Devils almost lost De Gea to Real Madrid in the 2015 summer transfer window before a deal fell through at the final hour.

De Gea was omitted from Manchester United’s starting line-up for their 2-0 win against Dutch giants Ajax in the Europa League final last month.

The Red Devils secured a return to the Champions League next term thanks to number two Sergio Romero’s performance in the final.
