Manchester United nearly saw De Gea join Real Madrid back in the summer of 2015, with the two clubs agreeing a deal on deadline day.

However, paperwork problems saw the goalkeeper remain with De Gea since going on to help the Red Devils win the FA Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League.

Real Madrid are in the market for a new shotstopper with Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois on their radar, despite the imminent arrival of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

And Spanish newspaper El Confidencial have claimed they are no longer chasing De Gea because the United man is no longer interested in a move.

It is said the Spain international was recently approached by Real president Florentino Perez.
