Manchester United to let De Gea leave on one condition

Manchester United are in complete overdrive to retain the services of fan-favourite shot-stopper David De Gea.

Should the United man sign a new contract, Real Madrid would reportedly turn their attention to Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois as they seek to improve their options between the sticks.

His current deal ends next year and there is an option to extend that by 12 months - but it does not look like coming to that.

The 27-year-old Belgian is reportedly stalling over a new deal with the Blues in order to push through a move to the Spanish giants.

United supporters will feel they should have won more silverware with a goalkeeper like De Gea-and definitely added to the one Premier League medal the Spaniard has in his collection. "It's always like this".

Keylor Navas is one player in danger of losing his place in the starting XI as Madrid eye a new goalkeeper.

In January, anti-India protests erupted across Kashmir after soldiers killed three civilians during clashes in the same area. Police intercepted the Malik-led protest march and took the separatist leader and some of his supporters into custody.

De Gea has been a long time target for the Los Blancos and was on the verge of joining them in August 2015 on a dramatic transfer deadline day but the deal failed through because of a supposedly faulty fax machine.

Jose Mourinho's arrival as manager helped persuade De Gea to stay at that point and the Portuguese is again working to retain a player with whom he shares an agent.

Mourinho said recently of De Gea's situation: "The option, it's obvious that we're not going to let the option disappear".

Rumours outlet Diario Gol claims that a top goalkeeper is among Ronaldo's demands and the five-time Ballon d'Or victor still (unsurprisingly) has good contacts with his former club, who have (somewhat redundantly) supposedly informed him the Spanish shot-stopper is in the form of his life. Mr Woodward is not on holiday.

"I just trust the board and the work they do". I just say what is obvious.
