Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea believed to have taken matters into his own hands regarding his Old Trafford future.
The former Atletico Madrid shot-stopper has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid over the past few transfer windows.
Madrid failed their extraordinary bid to land de Gea following an administrative error in the final moments of the 2015 summer transfer window as the almost done deal fall through.
However, the La Liga champions remain keen to bring him to the Bernabeu this summer with Keylor Navas’ recent performances not living up to Zinedine Zidane’s expectations.
Real are also reportedly keeping tabs on Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois.
And now according to Spanish publication Don Balon, De Gea is concerned Courtois will be signed as Real Madrid’s first choice ahead of him considering Manchester United’s lack of intent to initiate business.
The report claims de Gea is keen to make a switch to the Spanish capital and has already made personal calls to Real Madrid chiefs to activate a transfer.
He has reportedly informed his representatives to speed up negotiations to complete the deal this summer. The Spaniard is under contract with Manchester United until 2019.
The French centre-back is one of Real’s star performers and while Zinedine Zidane has no intention of offloading the 23-year-old, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez could overrule his manager.
Varane, many believes, has become an ‘untouchable’ in Zidane’s squad, but Perez’ is willing to take any step to lure David De Gea from Old Trafford.
