And so it goes on and on, just like we predicted when the possibility of losing David De Gea was first highlighted.

The latest in a saga that is now looking like reaching epic proportions, is that Manchester United are said to be not too impressed with the suggestion, coming from within the Bernabeu, Real Madrid will start the bidding for the Spanish keeper at a cheeky £13 million.

Manchester United, if our information is correct, are looking at more in the region of £25-30 million for the keeper which, to my mind, is a reasonable price.

In fact the vibes coming from Old Trafford are that the club would rather keep De Gea, even though he`s reputedly said his goodbyes to the players, for another year and lose him for nothing if the valuation placed on his head isn`t met.

But, as we`re all aware, in circumstances like this, clubs wanting to buy will try it on and will try to get their target on the cheap. My view is that, in a week or so (perhaps two or three), a compromise will be agreed whereby we`ll wave goodbye to De Gea for a fee in the region of £26 million and a new era between the United posts will begin!
