The Spaniard has continually been linked with Real Madrid and now Spanish daily Marca are claiming he has agreed terms on a long-term contract.

Manchester United Goalkeeper David de Gea has reportedly agreed personal terms over a move to Real Madrid this summer.

The Manchester United stopper is out of contract at the end of next season and has continually been touted for a move to the Bernabeu, replacing long-term No.1 Iker Casillas and according to Spanish publication Marca, the 24-year-old has reached an agreement on a A?4million-a-year deal.

De Gea’s contract in Madrid would then be between five and six years, although the two clubs are yet to agree a fee.

The 24-year-old has enjoyed another excellent campaign at Old Trafford and it is thought the Red Devils would demand at least A?30million for his services.

United have offered De Gea an improved A?140,000-a-week contract but Louis van Gaal conceded last month that they are powerless to keep him at the club if he wants to go.

“I want him to stay. The player is the boss, he can say a yesa or a noa ,” said Van Gaal.

a You will have to ask David de Gea, not me. He has to sign. We have offered him a lot of money.a

De Gea was pictured on a flight to Madrid earlier this week as he took some time off, leading to reports that he was in fact on his way to sign for Los Blancos.

The Spaniard did report back to training on Wednesday though, ahead of United’s clash with Arsenal on Sunday.

Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris is said to be United’s first-choice if De Gea departs, with the Frenchman’s future at White Hart Lane also uncertain.

Asmir Begovic is also under consideration but he would likely come in as back-up to Victor Valdes, who would then be promoted to No.1.
