Man United offer keeper De Gea new deal

Manchester United have stepped up their attempts to keep David De Gea at the club.

It is thought Real Madrid want the Spain keeper to replace Iker Casillas, but manager Louis van Gaal admits the Premier League club 'a lot of money' to stay.

"It takes a long time now," the United boss said when asked how negotiations are progressing.

"It can always happen. I am not the boss. I want him to stay. The player is the boss he can say yes or no.

"You will have to ask David de Gea (if he is staying), not me. He has to sign.

"We have offered him a lot of money."

Man United have tabled an opening offer of £21.5m for Mats Hummels, according to German publication Bild.

The German defender who is also a target for Liverpool is expected to follow Jurgen Klopp out of the door at Dortmund this summer.

Hummels has a contract at the club which runs until June 2017, and United will almost certainly be forced to increase their opening bid in order to secure his services.

World class central defender come at a premium and there is never a guarantee they will adjust to the rigours of English football.

Man City spent in excess of £30m on Eliaquim Mangala last year and the French international has struggled to adapt in the Premier League.
