De Gea’s homeland return
David De Gea is understood to be desperate to return to Spain next summer.
Although, the Spaniard remains under contract at Manchester United until 2019.
It is also believed that De Gea will not push for a move away either.
Should a suitable replacement come about, Mourinho may allow De Gea to leave.
Teenage sensation targeted
Highly rated 18-year-old Gianluigi Donnarumma is being eyed up as a replacement for the Spanish number one.
Donnarumma announced he would not sign a new contract with the Rossoneri earlier this summer.
