Reigning champions FC Barcelona will be under pressure to limit the gap at the top of the standings with leaders and traditional rivals Real Madrid in La Liga's showpiece derby football match, the "El Clasico", on Saturday. The game is without doubt the main course of 14th round of matches of the competition.

Although it comes at a relatively early stage of the season, the high-voltage match at Barcelona's home ground, the Camp Nou stadium, could potentially decide this season's title winners, given that Madrid already enjoy a six-point lead from Barcelona. A win would lift them nine clear. Madrid are on top with 33 points from 13 matches, ahead of second-placed Barcelona's 27.

David de Gea's proposed move to Real Madrid from Manchester United may have collapsed late last night with the paperwork not having been completed in time for the transfer deadline, but it is believed that both clubs will make a last ditch attempt to try and seal the transfer later today.

Real Madrid are set to meet FIFA officials on Tuesday morning and present to them their reasons for why they believe the transfer should still be allowed to happen. They will also meet La Liga officials and request for an extension.

On paper, it is unlikely that Real will succeed in their attempt with their being no precedent for a transfer to be completed after hours and La Liga unlikely to want to set one in this case.

United meanwhile are believed to be a little more relaxed about the situation as they have till 6pm GMT on Tuesday to wrap up Keylor Navas' switch if Real do get the go ahead. Navas' transfer though will probably not happen if the De Gea deal doesn't go through with Madrid not likely to allow the Costa Rican goalkeeper to move without a replacement in place.

What this all means is that the clubs can now reboot their attempts to seal the transfer on 1st January 2016, however, should that be the case Real will surely look to negotiate a lower transfer fee considering the amount of time left on De Gea's contract and there is every chance that the Spanish giants may even decide not to make a move for the young keeper till next summer when they can sign him on a free transfer - especially should both keepers feature in the group stages of the Champions League and become Cup Tied for the rest of the competition.

Meanwhile it will be interesting to see if De Gea is restored to first choice keeper at United after the international break, assuming there are no surprises in store tomorrow.
