Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is reportedly keen to conclude deals to sell Robin van Persie and David de Gea before the Red Devils depart on their pre-season tour of the United States, according to the Mirror.

The Dutch manager is keen to leave the duo behind when they leave on Monday to the United States, where they will take part in the International Champions' Cup.

According to the Guardian, Van Persie is close to completing a move to Turkish side Fenerbahce, with the club confirming that they are in talks to signing the striker. But the report claims that late interest from Atletico Madrid and Valencia could delay the decision.

The former Bayern Munich manager has reportedly made it clear to his compatriot that he is not part of his plans for the upcoming season, and with Van Persie wanting to play regular football is ready to move away from Old Trafford.

De Gea, on the other hand, has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid throughout the summer, but the two clubs are yet to come to an agreement regarding a fee for the player's transfer to the Spanish capital club.

The Spanish international, according to the Daily Mail, has already told friends that he is keen to move to Real this summer, and has already rejected a lucrative offer from the Red Devils.

Iker Casillas is reportedly closing in on a move to Porto, and the United boss is hoping that the deal goes through for the 'keeper, which will trigger the 10-times European champions into making a bid for the former Atletico Madrid stopper.

The Old Trafford club are holding out for a fee of around £35m, but Real are reluctant to pay a record fee for a goalkeeper, who has just one-year remaining on his contract. The report claims that a compromise fee is likely to be reached between the two clubs as Van Gaal is keen to take only the players, who are central to his plans next season.
