Real Madrid drop interest in Manchester United’s David de Gea – report

by Tanveer Arayan

Real Madrid have shelved plans to sign Manchester United’s David de Gea in the summer, according to Marca.

Instead, they plan to offer an improved contract to Keylor Navas, who has been in superb form in-between the sticks for the Spanish side this term.

Madrid made a very public attempt to sign De Gea last summer but the move fell through on the final day of the Spanish transfer window due to late paperwork.

Navas, meanwhile, was said to be on the verge of moving to Man United before the deal collapsed.

Both keepers seem to have moved on from the incident as they have been in excellent form for their respective sides this season.

The news that Madrid aren’t interested in De Gea anymore will be music to the ears of United fans, who have seen the Spaniard rescue their side on a number of occasions this term.

United have gone through an awful campaign but it would have been much worse were it not for De Gea’s efforts. The hope is that De Gea now stays at Old Trafford for years to come.
