A bid from Real Madrid is imminent as the two sides prepare to face each other on July 23rd in the US. The Red Devils, as usual, will not make the player’s exit an easy task and will demand a fee in excess of £60 million.
The Spanish goalkeeper is keen on a move to the Bernabeu, instructing his representative Jorge Mendes to get the deal done. Jose Mourinho believes he can get his No 1 to stay, with the prospect of Champions League football a decisive factor.
So, as the European champions return for another attempt to swoop the 26-year-old, they will have to meet United’s £60m valuation for Mourinho to even consider selling his goalkeeper.
