Bellamy: De Gea To Real Madrid ‘Only A Matter of Time’

Craig Bellamy insists it’s “only a matter of time” before David De Gea leaves Manchester United for Real Madrid.

Last year’s La Liga and Champions League winners have long been linked with a move for the Madrid-born De Gea and had already made an attempt to sign the player on deadline day in August 2015.

However, the deal broke down due to the paperwork not being completed on time, but Madrid have held interest in trying to bring the Spaniard to the Bernabeu since.

Bellamy believes the offers Madrid  make will be too persuasive for the goalkeeper to turn down due to the large sum the Los Blancos are willing to pay.

Bellamy praised the Spanish international and explains why Madrid will want them.

Speaking on The Debate, Bellamy said:

He is the real deal and I have always felt that Real Madrid have been looking for him to be their number 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.”

Real Madrid have endured a disappointing season to date with a number of unexpected losses. Star player Cristiano Ronaldo is off form and they are currently 19 points behind leaders and rivals Barcelona.

On acquiring a new net-minder, Bellamy added:

“Usually every top club has (to) rebuild and maybe it has been a little bit more overdue with Madrid because of the success of they have had in the Champions League.

“But I see De Gea being a huge part of that and Real Madrid do spend money, they always have done, they have been quiet over the last few years.

“I would be shocked if he did not go.”

Madrid had a quiet January transfer window but could be ready to splash the cash for the summer with their interest in the Red Devils ‘keeper De Gea, who has been at the club since 2011.
