De Gea - A Sacrificial Lamb?

De Gea - A Sacrificial Lamb?

After battling so hard and for so long to keep David de Gea at Old Trafford, could the Spanish goalkeeper become something of a sacrificial lamb in the coming weeks?

According to one popular tabloid that could well be the case.

Our associates over at the Daily Mirror, in discussing the manner in which any proposed deal for Critiano Ronaldo might be constructed, have come up with an interesting conclusion.

Our referenced source is of the opinion that in order to persuade Real Madrid to part-company with the want-away superstar, Manchester United will offer the current holders of the Champions League trophy a deal that will see a transfer fee of £175 million handed over and also David de Gea.

Now if our referenced source has gotten its sums correct, the deal would, we believe, value Ronaldo at around £235 million, which is far bigger sum of money anyone expected the best player in the world to cost.

But, it seems that even more money would be headed towards the Bernabeu with Manchester United still wanting to bring Alvaro Moratta to Old Trafford in a deal that would be done totally separate from any deal for Ronaldo.

But, is that really the case?

Looking elsewhere, another source, the Daily Mail, is championing a completely different set of figures.

This referenced source reckons that Manchester United will be giving Real Madrid £183 million and 26-year-old David de Gea and in return will get both Cristiano Ronaldo and his 24-year-old team-mate Alvaro Morata.
