Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has enlisted the help of Sergio Ramos to help secure a move to Real Madrid, according to reports in Spain.
Real Madrid’s interest in the goalkeeper is no secret, with the Spanish number one almost completing a move to the Bernabeu back in 2015, a move that was only scuppered by a ‘dodgy fax machine’. Despite his disappointment, De Gea signed a new long term deal at Old Trafford to keep him at the club until 2019.
However this hasn’t stopped the rumours of his return to the Spanish capital, with Los Blancos rumoured to have been interested in making another move this summer. But Manchester United’s world record valuation and Zinedine Zidane’s happiness with current Real keeper Keylor Navas stopped the move from ever getting going.
Spanish publication Diario Gol have claimed that De Gea has asked the Spain and Real Madrid captain Sergi Ramos to help broker a deal.
The pair have been working together on international duty and he wants Ramos to work on Zidane in order for the Frenchman to finally agree to a deal, a deal that Real Madrid supremo Florentino Perez is already keen to do.
De Gea is believed to be happy at Manchester United, but a chance to play for Real Madrid isn’t one that comes around too often, and he may want to seize his chance if they come calling for a third time.
