Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is an ambitious man, and Manchester United management knows that. The Red Devils authorities are very well aware that it is going to be very difficult to stop David de Gea from the lure of Real Madrid. And hence, they have proposed a new swap deal, consisting of Gareth Bale and David de Gea to the Los Blancos authorities.

David de Gea has become the most consistent member of Manchester United squad this season and he is widely regarded as the most talented young keeper of the world at the moment.

On the other hand, the season of Iker Casillas, the captain of Real Madrid, is marked by inconsistency. The Los Blancos management is losing its faith in the ability of Iker Casillas very fast and according to the reports coming from Spain, they have made up their mind to get rid of their legend in July.

Real Madrid are keeping watch on David de Gea since his Atletico Madrid days and they believe now is the right time to get their man.

Manchester United are reluctant to sale their star performer but they know it very well that the glamour of Real Madrid is very difficult to avoid.
