David de Gea is expected to push for a move from Manchester United if Louis van Gaal stays beyond the end of the season as he is reportedly disillusioned under the Dutchman. The Spaniard signed a four-year contract last year but that will not stop him from looking for a transfer should LVG stay at the club.

The Daily Mail reports that De Gea is concerned about United's ambitions for the future, as he will be missing out on Champions League football next season, and will press for a move with Real Madrid interested in his services. The Red Devils had a tough time keeping hold of De Gea last summer and will not want to go down that path yet again but they will be forced to act if he puts in a transfer request for the second year running.

Van Gaal's future is under debate after he failed to get the team into the top four and is being put under pressure by Jose Mourinho, who is favourites to land the role. The Portuguese manager has confirmed that he will get back to management in July and is being scouted by a lot of clubs across Europe, but his desire is to return to England where his family is based.

United currently have a game in hand against Bournemouth, which they have to play on Tuesday, 17 May, only four days before their FA Cup final against Crystal Palace. The corresponding fixture was cancelled on Sunday due to a hoax bomb threat. Van Gaal's future is believed to be hinging on United's performance in the FA Cup. Anything but a win will end LVG's tenure at the club. A win will take them joint top with Arsenal at 12, as the most successful club in the competition
