If one leading Sunday tabloid is to be believed, Manchester United have already opened talks to secure the services of a new keeper.

With Edwin Van der Sar having hit the forty mark on Friday, the tabloid has reported that United have opened talks with Atletico Madrid for their teenage sensation David de Gea

Apparently, if the tabloid is right, the fee is a massive £18m with the Spanish club wanting two instalments of £9 million to sign the nineteen year old.

Furthermore, the Spanish club are said to be demanding a further £4.5 million if United decide to part company with the keeper in years to come.

We reckon this deal could have some legs – keep an eye on things we certainly will!
