Jose Mourinho has told Real Madrid that he wants not one, but three players for Manchester United star David De Gea.
The 27 year old has been at Old Trafford since 2011, despite being linked multiple times with a move away, with Real Madrid very interested in his services. However, despite a move between Manchester United and Los Blancos falling through in 2015, David De Gea could now make a move next summer and Jose Mourinho has a few demands.
With Real Madrid desperate to revamp their squad next season, they have targeted a few areas that they need to bring in world-class talents, and that includes a brand new goal-keeper. However, while they are very very very interested in Manchester United’s David De Gea, the Los Blancos also want the likes of Thibaut Courtois and Gianluigi Donnaruma to replace the struggling Keylor navas.
However, with David De Gea their top target, it looks like Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane will have to give up three players if they want to sign the Spaniard from Manchester United. According to reports from Mundo Deportivo and Dario Gol, Jose Mourinho has reportedly asked the Santiago Bernabeu side for Raphael Varane, Marco Asensio and Isco in a potential swap deal for De Gea.
The Spaniard has been in sensational form and has become one of the best shot-stoppers in the world for the club, winning Manchester United’s player of the year three times in the last five years. However, the 27-year-old has always said that he would one day like to go back to Spain to play football there, and this has just increased Real Madrid interest in him.
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho already knows that he is going to lose one of his best players and in no way is he going to let Real Madrid get David De Gea for cheap. The Portuguese is very interested in signing French international Raphael Varane and thus has asked for him in a swap deal.
With David De Gea regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, it will be beyond difficult for Mourinho to replace the Spaniard, even if they bring in Donnarumma. Experience is something that cannot be replicated and the 27-year-old has that in spades, having made 285 appearances for the club.
