Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal will not let star man David De Gea leave Old Trafford easily.
The Spaniard is expected to leave Manchester for Madrid this summer but United will drive a hard bargain for Florentino Perez to get his No.1 summer recruit.
De Gea is out of contract next summer, allowing him to leave the Premier League club for nothing, but that has not impacted on United’s dealing of the transfer, with Marca reporting the club will not accept a penny less than €40 million.
The report suggests United will keep Madrid waiting right up until the transfer market closes in order to get the best price possible for the player.
Madrid want the player to be at the Bernabeu in time for the club’s pre-season so they can prepare for the new campaign with a new No.1 but any deal is far from imminent.
