‘De Gea reaffirms desire to leave’

David De Gea has reportedly reiterated his desire to leave Manchester United in favour of a move to Real Madrid.

The Spanish goalkeeper has been heavily linked with a switch to Los Blancos throughout the summer but, with no deal agreed between the two clubs as of yet, he reported for pre-season training with the Red Devils yesterday.

The Spanish Press report that the 24-year-old wasted no time in telling United boss Louis van Gaal of his continued desire to leave Old Trafford.

It is said that De Gea, who only has 12 months remaining on his contract at United, will be made one final offer in a bid to persuade him to remain at the club. However, he does not appear likely to agree terms.
