Manchester City is in fine form as they have claimed convincing victories in all 3 of the opening matches of the season. Manuel Pellegrini and his squad have defeated: West Bromwich Albion and Chelsea with 3-0 triumphs and also emerged victorious after visiting Everton in Goodison Park and snatched 3 more points.
So far it has been a perfect start of the season which has seen Manuel Pellegrini securing positive results after changing his formation to a 4-2-3-1 and this allows Manchester City on having stability in their defence as well as in their offensive department.
From the 3 initial matches of the season, Manchester City has not conceded a single goal but has still managed to score 8 goals.
There is a clear dominance that Manchester City has been displaying in every single match of the Premier League that they have played so far but even with this power and improvement that the team of Pellegrini has shown in the pitch, the Chilean manager is still well aware of the danger that his rivals represent.

David de Gea is 24 years old and the Spanish goal-keeper is already being hailed as one of the best players in the world of his position. Manchester United’s is currently in the 4th spot of the Premier League and this is a placement that seemed to be impossible for the Premier League club to reach some time ago.
After a disappointing time with David Moyes, he was sacked and replaced by Louis van Gaal. The Dutchman had a hard time adjusting to life at Old Trafford as his first league match concluded in a 2-1 defeat against Swansea City and 8 days later sustained a draw with Sunderland.
The Dutch coach has now proved that he is the right man to replace David Moyes as the club is well in their way in securing a Champions League spot for the upcoming season.
Even with the revival that Louis van Gaal has been doing, there is someone else that has almost single-handedly placed the weight of Manchester United in his shoulders and it’s David de Gea.
During the 2013-14 Premier League season, the Spanish goal-keeper was named as Manchester United’s Players’ Player of the Year award and his contributions to the team continue being undeniable.
His string of outstanding performances has attracted the likes of many top clubs but Real Madrid seems to be the team that is most desperate on signing the 24 year old player. IkerCasillas is not getting any younger and David de Gea seems to be the perfect successor of the experienced goal-keeper.
However, even with the astronomically high financial power that Real Madrid has it might not be enough to lure David de Gea away from Old Trafford as the player has already stated his satisfaction in performing with the club. Read the rest of this entry »

Manchester United are bracing themselves for a bid from Real Madrid for goalkeeper David de Gea, who has emerged as the first choice target to replace Iker Casillas at the Spanish club.
United had concerned by the fact that the goalkeeper, who was signed from Atletico Madrid for £ 18 million, may have had his head turned by the possibility of returning to Madrid. After his arrival to English football, De Gea was far from the finished article. In fact, the number of mistakes that he made during his first season at United made many consider that the purchase was one of the biggest flops.
De Gea has since been spectacular and was one of the best players in a very poor campaign last time around. He has improved even more this season andDe Gea could possibly considered as the best goalkeeper in the world right now. Read the rest of this entry »

At the age of 24, David de Gea is making a huge impact with Manchester United as the Spanish goalkeeper has been one of the few players in the Premier League club that has managed to perform consistently at a very high level. It comes as no surprise listening to rumors that are linking de Gea to a number of different clubs which are interested in signing him and one of those clubs is Real Madrid.
Real Madrid is known for splashing out astronomically high amounts of cash in order to sign their desired targets, this is what occurred with C.Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in recent years as C.Ronaldo was the most expensive player during some time before the Welshman was signed by Real Madrid for a fee of €94 million.
David de Gea could become the next record breaking signing of Real Madrid. There is no denying that David de Gea is one of the top 4 goalkeepers in the world along with Manuel Neuer, ThibautCourtois and Gianluigi Buffon.
Real Madrid is entering a transitional period where they have to start considering on which player to sign to replace IkerCasillas who is reaching the last few years of his career at the age of 33, he still manages to perform well but has also shown slip ups recently.
Gianluigi Buffon became the most expensive goalkeeper in history after he joined Juventus for a price tag of €51 million but that record could be broken if Real Madrid are indeed interested in signing David de Gea from Manchester United, there is no doubt that the Spanish club is willing to go deep in their pockets in their attempt of signing David de Gea.
Louis van Gaal is not interested in selling David de Gea but Manchester United needs a cash injection in order to strengthen other departments of the squad which have appeared vulnerable and offloading David de Gea could resolve this problem.
