Spanish newspaper Marca have reported that David De Gea has already agreed personal terms with Real Madrid.

According to the Spanish newspaper, who put 'Done Deal' on their front page, the only thing now standing in the way of the transfer away from Manchester United is the Spanish club agreeing a fee for the goalkeeper.

Louis van Gaal admitted that his scouting department have a 'long list' of potential replacements for the 24-year-old, who has stalled over signing a new deal at Old Trafford.

"When we have a very good scouting commission, then we shall already know who shall be the next goalkeeper," the United manager said.

"We also have a list of goalkeepers who can replace him because we have to be organised always. Not only for that position but for every position."

That does not mean Van Gaal is resigned to losing a player who has saved him so many points this season.

"We want him to stay and I hope he shall sign," Van Gaal said.

"The most important party is always the player. He has to sign, he has to want to stay here at Manchester United."

De Gea has reportedly been offered around £200,000-a-week to stay at the club, whilst his girlfriend, Edurne Garcia, does not currently live in Manchester, but in Madrid.
