Manchester: Spanish football club Real Madrid wants to sign Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea next season, a club spokesman said on Monday.
David de Gea
The 25-year-old was heavily linked with the Spanish giants last summer but the move failed to materialise and de Gea penned a four-year contract with United which reportedly has a 36 million pound release clause.
"Real Madrid will not attempt to sign David de Gea in the January window. But the club is proposed to sign him in the summer for next season," a club spokesman was quoted as saying by telegraph.co.uk.
The Spaniard signed for United in 2011 from Atletico Madrid where he had joined as a youth player when he was just 13. He debuted for Atletico in 2009.
