Ronaldo: If James wants to leave…

Ronaldo: If James wants to leave…

Manchester United are not aware of a £60m bid from Real Madrid for David de Gea.

While De Gea was keen to leave Old Trafford two years ago, the appointment of Jose Mourinho last year and subsequent return to the Champions League are likely to have softened his stance on that.

David De Gea who arrived Manchester United as a young goal keeper from Athletico Madrid, was brought in to replace the retiring Edwin Van De Sar. Still, on a personal level, I think James has the potential to play for Real Madrid. According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, he has whittled his options down to three targets: A.S. Monaco's Kylian Mbappe, Real's Alvaro Morata and the man who remains the priority, Atletico's Antoine Griezmann.
