Manchester United have reportedly told Real Madrid that goalkeeper David de Gea will not be sold for nothing less than £66million this summer.
United have decided to get the best possible price they can for the 26-year-old Spaniard who has already established to leave Old Trafford after six years, during which time he has made himself as one of the top goalkeepers in the world of football.
The Spanish international is said to be determined to return to Madrid but United are giving a no-nonsense attitude over the price, although it is stated that they are still willing to play close attention to offers concerning some certain Real players in a swap.
The potential players that are part of the exchange still remains striker Alvaro Morata and it is claimed, in the Sunday Times, that United would reduce De Gea’s price by £43m if they were able to get the forward as part of the deal.
24-year-old Morata is considered as the perfect replacement for United's injured frontman, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who looks to have played his last game for after suffering a double cruciate ligament rupture towards the end of the season.
However, the deal would not be happening any time soon as AC Milan remained an obstacle as they are already believed to have agreed a deal to sign Morata this summer.
