Madrid end De Gea chase

The 18-year-old keeper looks to be heading for the exit at the San Siro with only one year left on his existing deal with the Serie A club.

He also "liked" a post plugging a report claiming he was recruiting Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez on the prospect of leaving Real and coming with him to United.

Surely we are watching him.

Donnarumma, 18, has put a host of clubs on alert after announcing his decision not to sign a Milan renewal, with his contract due to expire at the end of 2017-18.

As for Bale, Perez said that he wasn't disappointed with the 27-year-old's lack of production in an injury-ravaged campaign.

The Real Madrid head coach has also been supportive of Keylor Navas, one of the reasons the club ditched their idea of signing David de Gea, but he could agree to bring in Donnarumma to provide more competition for the Costa Rican.

Milan are historic giants who have enjoyed a fine summer transfer window so far, but they haven't been a factor in Europe in years.

So, all those wild transfer rumor stories you've seen, about De Gea and major cash going to Madrid for Morata and Ronaldo? Two years ago we had that fax misfortune.

He has reportedly asked Madrid to settle the bill but it is said that he is angry and therefore wishes to quit the side and return to Manchester United, a club that sources close to the player have said is "very close to his heart". "I love Keylor Navas and the truth is that, back in 2015, I didn't know him as I do now". Why he (Zidane) wanted de Gea before?

According to Marca, Los Blancos have reached verbal agreements with both Kylian Mbappe and Gianluigi Donnarumma, and it is now up to manager Zinedine Zidane whether or not the deals go through.
