Real Madrid news: Sky Sports pundit makes transfer prediction about Man Utd star De Gea

DAVID DE GEA will swap Manchester United for Real Madrid and it is only a “matter of time” before he makes the switch, according to Craig Bellamy.

De Gea has been coveted by Real Madrid for the past few years.

A deal collapsed on deadline day in 2015 due to a faulty fax machine which would have seen Keylor Navas head to Old Trafford.

With a trophyless campaign beckoning for Real, a serious rebuild is expected to happen at the end of the campaign.

A goalkeeper has been earmarked, and Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois is on the shortlist.

Reports have emerged suggesting Real will have to spend around £115million to land De Gea.

And Bellamy has admitted he would not be surprised if Real finally got their man in the summer.

“Usually every top club has a rebuild and maybe it has been a little bit more overdue with Madrid because of the success of they have had in the Champions League,” Bellamy told Sky Sports’ The Debate.

'But I see De Gea being a huge part of that and Real Madrid do spend money, they always have done, they have been quiet over the last few years.

'So probably due to the fact that it will take a huge fee to get him and prise him away from Man Utd, I would be shocked if he did not go.'


Bellamy also explained why De Gea is such an attractive option for Real, adding: “He is the real deal and I have always felt that Real Madrid have been looking for him to be their No 1 for a number of years.

“And it is just a matter of time before they get him.

'His footwork is brilliant, he anticipates as well, he can read forwards and if you watch, he makes a lot of his saves with his feet. He is incredible.

'He asks the forward so many questions when you are gunning down on him and he is a real top goalkeeper.'
