David De Gea has reportedly asked Spanish team-mate and Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos to help him earn a dream move to the Santiago Bernabeu, according to ESPN.
David De Gea has consistently been linked with a move to Real Madrid for a couple of years now, with him coming close to signing for the Spanish and European Champions in the summer of 2015 and only a last-minute failure to complete the paper-works prevented his departure from Manchester.
After the collapsed move to Madrid, United were able to tie down De Gea to a brand new deal and the Spanish international has gone on to consolidate his status as one of the best goalkeepers in the world with some performances over the past few years.
De Gea joined Manchester United as a 19-year-old from Atletico Madrid for around £18.5 million in 2011 and the Spaniard has undergone a massive improvement since the move to Old Trafford, which has seen him transform from a talented but inconsistent shot-stopper, to a commanding all-round custodian.
The 26-year-old has been so effective between the sticks for United during his time at Old Trafford that he won three back to back Sir Matt Busby player of the year awards from 2013 to 2016. He has indeed demonstrated his importance to United and the Red Devils will surely do everything in their power to keep the Spaniard at the club.
However recent reports suggest that De Gea still has his heart set on a move to Madrid and has allegedly asked Los Blancos’ captain Sergio Ramos to persuade the Spanish giants hierarchy to revive their interest on him and make a move in the coming future.
The task of keeping hold of De Gea might be even more difficult for United should the goalkeeper’s reported pleas make its way into the ears of Florentino Perez and the Real President surely will not shy away from splashing a record breaking transfer fee to sign arguably the best goal-keeper in the world next summer.
