JOE’s 5-Word Transfers: De Gea, Sterling, De Bruyne, Koke, Depay

De Gea's about to get Real...

De Gea to wave goodbye?

Manchester United fans have long feared the departure of David De Gea to Real Madrid in the summer and now his United teammates are thought to be equally concerned.

According to the Daily Mirror, some United players are convinced that De Gea’s mind is made up on a return to his homeland, following speculation at the weekend that he has already said ‘Si’ to Real Madrid.

De Gea’s departure could lead to the promotion of his compatriot Victor Valdes to the United first team, but after saves like the one below this season, those are clown-sized boots he’s going to have to fill.

Juve got to be kidding

Raheem Sterling hasn’t exactly looked a £50million player amid all the turmoil surrounding his contract and private life in recent weeks, but that hasn’t put his suitors off the scent.

The Sun say that Italian giants Juventus are prepared to fork out that amount of money for the England international and that they’re prepared to let the highly sought-after Paul Pogba leave the club to balance the books.

Should Juve really be considering letting this lad leave? Their call, we suppose.


United want Memphis. How much Depay?

Memphis Depay is well on his way to becoming the poster boy for the summer transfer window and he’s all over the back pages again today.

Manchester United’s interest in the PSV starlet has been long-standing and Liverpool have been sniffing around of late. Now, the big boys are set to join the party with the Dutch press reporting that both PSG and Bayern Munich are hot on his trail.

This one could rumble on for a while yet, but the boy could well be worth the hassle.
