The 25-year-old was on the verge of joining Real last summer to replace Iker Casillas but a transfer fell through due to an administrative error on deadline day.

De Gea has since signed a new four-year contract with the Red Devils until 2019 and is one of United's prized assets.

But according to Spanish newspaper AS, Real will renew their interest in the shot-stopper with president Florentino Perez making De Gea his No1 transfer target.
