Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David De Gea is having a medical ahead of his proposed move to Manchester United.

The 20-year-old will replace Edwin van der Sar at Old Trafford and will cost a reported £18.9m.

The Premier League champions have already signed defender Phil Jones from Blackburn and last week brought in Ashley Young from Aston Villa.

De Gea was part of the Spain squad which won the European Under-21 championships on Saturday.

More to follow.

Little known fact that David De Gea was 2 hours from signing for Wigan 2 years ago just before the deal was sealed , MAdrid pulled out , 2 weeks later lost both their keepers to injury and up stepped a certain De Gea and not looked back since :lol:

Worst kept secret in Spain is this transfer to Utd :lol:

Man U have spent some 50M on players so far. SAF spending very wisely, wonder i hes going to put a bid in for Adam aswell.

wonder if man united are getting the spending in before UEFA's new financial restrictions come into play

with their debts and UEFA's new legislations that they are trying to get in, wont be long before Man U, Chelsea etc all have to cut their cloth properly

SAF has spent his money in the last 2 seasons on players that could very well be at the club for the next decade, perhaps expecting a transfer halt for a good while

The new rules are only going to strengthen teams like Utd's spending!

If they spend £50 on one player and he signs a 5year deal that isnt going to go as a lump sum against them but will be £10m for 5years. Teams will also be allowed to still run in debt but the debt will be limited at a certain amount...teams like Utd, Real Madrid, Man City will be able to generate revenue from other areas without breaking the rules. I mean Man City's sponsors are the clubs owners...if they renew the deal with a £100m fee that would allow them to break even!

Its not going to change as much as they hope!
