Manchester United and Spain national team goalkeeper David De Gea is reportedly keen on to buy a Spanish club Elche.

The Valencia-based team are currently playing in Segunda division and were in La Liga as recently as 2015.

According to Super Deporte, the Spanish team are available for £16m and both parties are believed to be keen on in taking talks further.

It is reported that the 28-year-old keeper’s interest in the side, currently managed by Pacheta, comes from his Dad who is believed to be a massive fan of the team.

Elche’s leading shareholder Jose Sepulcre had previously been in talks with player agent Christian Bragarnik, but talks have cooled in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, Manchester United officials have reportedly identified PSG head-coach Thomas Tuchel as a potential replacement for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has been recently tipped to depart from the Old Trafford if the Red Devils fail to improve their record in the English top-tier this season.

Despite having signed a long-term deal earlier this year, Norwegian manager is yet to prove that he can move to 20-times English champions closer to the likes of Liverpool and Man City in the Premier League table.

As far as German manager is concerned, he has just led French giants to a 3-0 victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League, while his team also sit on top of the Ligue 1 table despite having three key players Neymar, Mbappe and Cavani out.

However, according to Le10 Sport, French champions do not intend on keeping German manager in charge past the end of this campaign, possibly departing the door open for the Red Devils.
