Manchester United are reportedly ready to offer David de Gea to Real Madrid if it helps the club pull off the shocking transfer return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford.
According to Don Balon, re-signing Cristiano is a dream for many involved at the Red Devils, and they’d be open to accepting Los Blanco’s sizeable demands for the Portugal international.
The Spanish outlet claims that Real Madrid want around €100 million and David De Gea for Ronaldo, in what could be a good business for both sides.
Fans, Although, may be cautious about Manchester United spending quite so much and sacrificing one of their most key players, even for signing as exciting as Cristiano.
Set to turn 34 next campaign, Real Madrid superstar cannot go on at this high level forever, even if he currently indicates no signs of slowing down after another stunning season in which he helped his side win a third consecutive Champions League title.
Jose Mourinho could surely do with that kind of experience and quality in his attack after a disappointing campaign, with strengthening up top perhaps worth a sacrifice at the back if the team is to move forward.
Manchester United won’t be landing the Italian giants Juventus full-back Alex Sandro this summer, with the club cooling their long-standing interest in the star for now, according to the regional daily newspaper Manchester Evening News.
It’s reported that the left-back position is one which coach Jose Mourinho isn’t prioritising at this stage, with the Manchester United boss interested to add a central defender as well as a backup striker.
Jose Mourinho is understood to be happy with the options of England international players Luke Shaw and Ashley Young in the left-back department next campaign, meaning the club’s hierarchy won’t make a move for Alex Sandro.
Juventus key man is stalling over a new contract, but the Red Devils have decided to not explore this option and will, for now at least, switch their attention away from the signing of a left-back.
If Manchester United are to bolster their left-back options, they are now possible to go for a younger and more promising player, it looks like, as they look to react after a difficult season last term by building for the future.
