Spanish champions Real Madrid have reportedly made contact with the representative of David de Gea with a view to pushing through a summer move to the Bernabeu.
The Spain international famously missed out on his switch to Los Blancos in the summer of 2015 after a faulty fax machine delayed the transmission of documents prior to the transfer deadline.
Since then, the 26-year-old has inked a long-term contract with the Red Devils whilst evolving into probably one of the best goalkeepers in the Europe and the world.
According to Cadena Cer, via The Mirror, the Champions League holders have once more made contact with super-agent Jorge Mendes after their chances of signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga on the cheap diminished.
The Basque goalkeeper was initially tipped to join Los Blancos for a bargain price with just six months left on his contract, but he has, however, surprised the Capital outfit by penning a fresh deal with Bilbao which includes an €80m release clause.
Real Madrid have been rumoured to be interested in £200,000 a-week star in the past couple of summer transfer windows, but the next one could be decisive with the European champions likely to spend big after their domestic woes this campaign.
Zidane’s side suffered more misery with a surprise Copa del Rey exit at the hands of Leganes, and they are likely to consider a change of management in the summer, which could influence a massive spending spree.
Manchester United have begun preliminary talks over a fresh contract with De Gea, and Jose Mourinho will no doubt place a hefty price tag on the Spaniard’s head in order to ward off potential interest in the summer.
