De Gea Poised for United Switch

it would take Sir Alex Ferguson's summer spending past the £50 million mark

David de Gea is currently undergoing a medical ahead of his imminent move to Manchester Untied.

Fresh from triumph with the Spain Under-21 side in the European Under-21 Championships De Gea is now ready to complete his proposed £17 million move from Atletico Madrid to the English champions. The 20-year-old is believed to have agreed to the move prior to the Under-21 championships but the move was delayed until the conclusion of the tournament.

De Gea has played 57 times for Atletico Madrid and comes to United as one of the most highly-rated young goalkeepers in Europe.

Should the ‘keeper complete his move it would take Sir Alex Ferguson’s summer spending past the £50 million mark as the Spaniard joins the multi-million pound acquisitions of Ashley Young and Phil Jones.

United can be backed at 7/4 to retain their Premier League title and are 8/13 to get off to a winning start to the season away to West Brom.
