A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United…
The Spaniard did not feature for United in their opening Premier League game of the season against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, but manager Louis van Gaal has no intention of selling him on the cheap.
Real are reportedly readying a £25million bid for De Gea this week but that is allegedly still £10million short of United’s valuation, even if the player has just a year left on his current contract.
The Netherlands international has been tipped to replace De Gea at Old Trafford but despite van Gaal reportedly preparing a £25million bid of his own, Ajax boss Frank de Boer has warned United his ‘keeper's price tag has increased due to the Dutch club's failure thus far to sign a suitable replacement.
He would replace Angel Di Maria in United’s squad and is being tipped to arrive in the coming days.
