Manchester United odds-on to keep hold of David De Gea
After another fine campaign for De Gea at Manchester United, speculation continues over the 26-year-old swapping Old Trafford for Real Madrid this summer.
De Gea was set to join Real in 2015, only for his transfer to collapse on deadline day.
The Spain No 1 has been linked with a Bernabeu switch ever since, but bookmakers Betfair have priced United at 4/7 to keep hold of him for next season.
Reports surfaced last night that Real had a £60million offer turned down for De Gea, but the move can be backed at odds of 6/4.

Jose Mourinho recently dismissed rumours of a summer departure for De Gea, claiming United have no desire to sell their best players.
The United boss said: “He will be with us when we play our first pre-season game in Los Angeles on July 15.
"He is the best goalkeeper in the world and we want to keep the best.”
De Gea has two years remaining on the contract he signed in 2015, and United and Spain team-mate Juan Mata is confident the goalkeeper is happy at Old Trafford.

"Well, I think he is happy and I think he is obviously committed to the club. He has got a contract," Mata said last month.
"He is obviously more than used to living England, he is happy in Manchester.
"For me, he is great – great person, great player. If not the best goalkeeper in the world, top three for sure.
"He gave us a lot of points during the last seasons, player of the season for the team, and obviously he is happy and I don't see a reason for him to change.
"So let's hope that he can save so many more goals for us."
