Real Madrid coach Rafa Benitez has strongly hinted that he will make more signings for Real this summer, with Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea continued to be heavily linked with a return to Spain.

De Gea has been linked with the transfer all summer long, with recent reports that the deal will be completed imminently.

The goalkeeper, 24, has just one year remaining on his contract at Manchester United.

"We have a good team, but coaches always want to improve," Benitez said after his side's pre-seaoson 1-0 Audi Cup final defeat to Bayern Munich. "The market is open until August 31."

Earlier today, De Gea's girlfriend, the popstar Edurne Garcia, has seemingly confirmed that the Manchester United goalkeeper's transfer to Real is complete.

El Mundo reported that Garcia was caught off-microphone while taking part in a TV interview in Spain on Wednesday night suggesting that her boyfriend's move to the Spanish giants is done.

 

"Now, when he is in Madrid," she reportedly said, "everything will be much easier."

It is not the first time Garcia, known professionally as just Edurne, has upset the Old Trafford faithful. Back in March she agreed that Manchester was "uglier than the back of a fridge".
