Man Utd make approach for de Gea?

25th May 2011 - Alma Shera

Manchester United football manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that the club are close to signing Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David de Gea.

The team's current shot-stopper Edwin Van der Sar will retire after Saturday's (May 28th) Champions League Final and Ferguson's search for a replacement has been widely reported.

However, it is only now that the manager has revealed the identity of his desired goalkeeper.

Speaking on the topic, Ferguson said: "He is young, very quick, good composure, presence and an outstanding replacement for Van der Sar.

"We've been working on it [the deal] for quite a while."

The goalkeeper's contract contains a €25 million buy-out clause (£22 million), which is set to expire in 2013.

Manchester United will now be focusing all of their attention on Sunday's clash with Barcelona after they ended their domestic season with a 4-2 victory at home against Blackpool.
