Manchester United bracing themselves for Real Madrid to resurrect David De Gea transfer saga with £50m offer


Manchester United are waiting for a £50million bid for David De Gea from Real Madrid, writes David McDonnell in Los Angeles .
United were confident they had headed off Real's interest in De Gea for another summer, but the Spanish giants are ready to swoop for the goalkeeper once again.
Sources close to both clubs have claimed Real have begun to make fresh advances towards United's No.1 in a new attempt to lure him to the Bernabeu this summer.
United are determined to keep hold of De Gea, despite boss Jose Mourinho's confidence in No.2 Sergio Romero and his third-choice keeper, Portuguese prodigy Joel Pereira.
But a bid in excess of £50m would test their resolve to keep hold of De Gea, who has made no secret of his desire to one day return home, with Real his obvious destination.
De Gea's move to Real collapsed on transfer deadline day in the summer of 2015, following a paperwork glitch, after both clubs had agreed to a deal which would have seen Bernabeu keeper Keylor Navas moving the other way.
Although Madrid native De Gea subsequently signed a new contract, he has remained a target for Real, who could be ready to exact revenge for United walking away from a deal over their striker Alvaro Morata deal by making a world record bid for the 27-year-old.
The fee, if accepted, would eclipse the £38m Juventus paid Parma for Gianluigi Buffon in 2001, which remains the world record amount paid for a goalkeeper.
