Man Utd have become so desperate to sign either Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid, that they will include David de Gea as part of any agreement.
Real Madrid clearly want de Gea, they came very close last summer and will be making another attempt next summer, but the willingness of United to include the Spanish keeper as part of a swap deal could see that happen this winter.
United clearly want Bale and would relish a chance to have Ronaldo return and they probably are resigned to the fact that de Gea will leave anyway. So including him a deal now would make sense.
One things is for sure, it will be an interesting January with United ready to make a big deal.
