The Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David De Gea has confirmed Manchester United are to make him an offer as he moves closer to sealing a move to the English football champions.

The 20-year-old had a medical at Old Trafford yesterday in preparation for a deal worth about 37 million dollars.

De Gea wrote on Twitter that he's been invited by Man U to see the club and the city and to be given an offer.

De Gea was part of the Spain squad which won the European Under-21 Championship last weekend.

His arrival at Old Trafford follows the departure of Edwin van der Sar, who retired after the Champions League final defeat by Barcelona in May.
