Man United goalkeeper David De Gea has reportedly accepted a contract offer from Real Madrid which takes him a step closer to an exit from Manchester.
According to Marca, the Spaniard has made his mind up and wants to join the Spanish giants and has gone as far as agreeing to terms on a deal.
De Gea was left out of the squad again by boss Louis Van Gaal for the trip to face Aston Villa on Friday night, and it appears as though the writing is on the wall with regards to his future at Old Trafford.
It is claimed that United have offered him a new deal, one that is more lucrative than that on the table from Madrid.
Marca suggest that it is worth €14m over six years, and despite the fact that the La Liga outfit are only offering around €5m per year, De Gea has his heart set on moving on.
However, where the problem could arise is over the transfer fee as De Gea has just one year remaining on his contract with United and so Madrid will not want to pay over the odds for him.
With more than two weeks to go until the transfer window closes, this saga looks set to drag on a little longer and that will continue to mean that the Spanish international is left out until a resolution is found.
