MANCHESTER, July 3- Manchester United have reportedly told Real Madrid they will only allow goalkeeper David de Gea to leave if they receive a world record fee.

The Red Devils have a real battle on their hands to convince the ‘keeper to stay at Old Trafford, as the Spaniard has just 12 months left on his contract and has given no indication that he would like to pen an extension.

And with Real seemingly determined to secure the signature of De Gea ahead of the new campaign, United are hoping to agree a massive fee.

Gianluigi Buffon’s transfer from Parma to Juventus in 2001, which cost the Old Lady an eye-watering £32.6 million, is still the record fee paid for a goalkeeper, and the Manchester outfit are said to be holding out for an amnount that would better that.

Meanwhile, rumours of an impending move to Real Madrid have intensified after De Gea was spotted arriving in Madrid on Wednesday.

When quizzed on why he was in the Spanish capital, De Gea said: “I’ve only come here to rest. I am on holiday. Everything’s fine.”
