Former Liverpool and Man City forward, Craig Bellamy believes De Gea move to Real Madrid is inevitable.
The Manchester United keeper has long been courted by the Spanish giants, with his impending move to the Spanish capital breaking down in August 2015 due to a fax error.
Bellamy told The Debate that it will be too much of a ask to expect De Gea to turn down a move to Real Madrid this summer.
“He is the real deal and I have always felt that Real Madrid have been looking for him to be their No 1 for a number of years
“And it is just a matter of time before they get him.
“His footwork is brilliant, he anticipates as well, he can read forwards and if you watch, he makes a lot of his saves with his feet. He is incredible.
“He asks the forward so many questions when you are gunning down on him and he is a real top goalkeeper.”
All hope seems lost for Real Madrid to retain the La Liga title, as they sit in fourth position in La Liga, trailing Barcelona by 19 points at the top of the table.
