Man United make £20m OFFICIAL OFFER for Southampton midfielder
Reports in Spain suggested the Red Devils had dropped its valuation of the player to £25m, however, The Mirror says United have no intention of compromising on its £35m asking price for the 24-year-old shot-stopper.
According the report, United are even prepared to allow De Gea to run down the final year of his contract rather than allow him to join Real Madrid in a cut-price deal.
De Gea is believed to have rejected United’s £200k-a-week five-year deal and it is understood he has his heart set on a move back to his homeland.
The Spanish international was superb for the Red Devils last term and was a key performer in United’s push back into the Champions League.
Real Madrid will have to break the all-time transfer fee record for a goalkeeper to sign De Gea this summer and eclipse the £32m Juventus paid Parma for Gianluigi Buffon in 2001.
