David De Gea is set join Real Madrid after telling Manchester United that he wants out.

SPORT HOMEWARD BOUND

The Premier League club now have to decide whether they should sell the keeper this summer or hold him to the final year of his contract, losing him on a free transfer at the end of next season.

The attraction of playing for Real combined with returning to his home city as well as living with his girlfriend there, are viewed as  major factors in De Gea’s decision.

United’s handling of the 24-year-old in recent years – including Louis van Gaal’s instruction that the club hold off on the offer of a new contract last summer until the incoming manager had time to work with De Gea in person – facilitated Madrid’s approach.

He’s wanted at the Bernabeu as Iker Casillas’ long-term replacement, with talk of a 40 million euro fee for him.
