It is being reported this weekend Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has absolutely no intention of selling David De Gea to Real Madrid.
The Manchester United shot stopper has been subject of rumours linking him with a sensational move to Real Madrid for a few years now, and many Manchester United fans have been preparing themselves for the time De Gea moves on.
Many of these fans speculated that this summer could finally be the time we see De Gea return to Madrid, this time to turn out for Real.
Much to the delight of these fans, Spanish football expert Guillem Balague confirmed via a Twitter Q&A that Mourinho is willing to fight to keep the Spanish goalkeeper at Old Trafford this summer.
“The original list of potential Galacticos included, amongst others, David De Gea, Thibaut Courtois, Paulo Dybala and Eden Hazard,” Balague told Sky Sports.
“But Dybala has just renewed his contract with Juve and Chelsea have got no intention of selling Hazard and believe Courtois is happy with his leadership role at the club.
“Jose Mourinho has let Real Madrid know he has no intention of selling. The options are getting reduced by the day,” he added.
Madrid have also been linked with Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois, but reports also suggest Antonio Conte will do everything possible to keep hold of the Belgian.
Madrid will no doubt continue to pursue at least one of these targets – but as things stand, it looks like both Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte are refusing to budge.
