Jose Mourinho launches £40m bid to replace David De Gea

Jose Mourinho launches £40m bid to replace David De Gea

The shot-stopper has been linked with a move back to the Spanish capital for some time, with a move in 2015 collapsing when on the brink of being completed.

The goalkeeper nearly signed for Real in 2015 but the deal fell through at the last hurdle and he signed a new contract at Old Trafford.

Recent reports indicate that David De Gea is Real's number one priority, while Keylor Navas' days at the Santiago Bernabeu are numbered, having failed to convince president Florentino Perez.

"For instance, they say "OK you get De Gea, what do we want?" Does he want to go?

"What is the best scenario for us?"

Terrorists have struck the Balkh Province leading to the loss of the precious lives of Afghan soldiers. A USA official in Washington on Friday had put the toll at more than 50 killed and wounded.

Real Madrid have a Plan B in case they are unable to sign David De Gea or Thibaut Courtois, according to the latest sources in Spain. "There has to be something where Manchester United come out of it even better".

And last summer Real did not activate a £30m get-out clause for De Gea which expired last June. Bayern and Real share healthy relations after concluding the transfers of Arjen Robben, Xabi Alonso and Toni Kroos in recent seasons.

Mourinho though wants at least one player included in the deal for the 26-year-old, and has his eye on two Madrid stars in particular in Raphael Varane and Alvaro Morata.

The report claims that Carlos Bacca will be sold by Milan next season which leaves Suso as their only frontman in the squad.

Madrid rate Morata, 24, at over £50m.
