If reports in the Spanish publication Marca are to be believed, Real Madrid are on the verge of signing David De Gea, after the 26-year-old goalkeeper expressed his desire to join the 11-time European champions in the summer.

Marca also claims that Jose Mourinho has already had a chat with the Spanish international three weeks ago, and said that he won’t stand in his way as long as the right deal can be struck.

Having played 63 games consecutively in the Premier League, De Gea was dropped against Sunderland on April 9, and Mourinho insisted that the Spaniard had picked up a hip problem. When asked about De Gea’s transfer situation, the former Chelsea manager said that he wouldn’t think about it until the end of the season.

“I am not interested in talking about speculation, I don’t think he should be interested in talking about it either,” Mourinho said at the time.

“We are playing against very important teams, every game is crucial and I don’t see that David is having any problems with this. The end of the season is the time when players can think about what will happen to their careers.”

De Gea has been on Real’s radar for a long time, and in fact, he came very close to joining them in August 2015. But his move fell through when paperwork was submitted just minutes after the transfer window closed.

Two years after they failed in an attempt to sign him, it seems that the La Liga giants are preparing a world record fee for a goalkeeper, which is rumoured to be around £75m. The most expensive transfer for a goalkeeper to this point belongs to Gianluigi Buffon, when Juventus paid £54m to Parma in July 2001.

Now, there is a chance that the world record might be broken in the upcoming summer transfer window, when Real Madrid sign David De Gea from the 13-time Premier League Champions.
