Craig Bellamy would be surprised if Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea did not seal a move to La Liga side Real Madrid someday.
The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with the Spanish giants over the past few seasons since his transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu collapsed due to a faulty fax machine in 2015.
And ex-Manchester City and Wales forward Bellamy believes De Gea - who has a contract with the Red Devils up until 2019 - will end up going to ply his trade at the Santiago Bernabeu.
"He is the real deal and I have always felt that Real Madrid have been looking for him to be their number one for a number of years," Bellamy told Sky Sports. "And it is just a matter of time before they get him.
"His footwork is brilliant, he anticipates as well, he can read forwards and if you watch, he makes a lot of his saves with his feet. He is incredible.
"He asks the forward so many questions when you are gunning down on him and he is a real top goalkeeper."
