According to CaughtOffside, contract talks are still ongoing, but an agreement between the two parties seems far off, as the latest demand has put a spanner in the works.
With Real Madrid earmarking the Spaniard as their no.1 replacement for the diminishing Iker Casillas, the Red Devils are keen for a sizeable buy-out clause to be written into any new contract for their goalkeeper, in order to ward off interest.
However, £25m would comfortably be met by the Spanish giants, leaving the Old Trafford club with a difficult job on their hands to avoid their prized asset leaving on a free at the end of the 2015/16 season.
