Real Madrid have already begun the preparations to sign Manchester United star David de Gea, according to Spanish news outlet OK Diario.
David de Gea has been linked with a potential transfer to Real for the past two years. The deal nearly happened last summer, but it fell through at the last moment due to late submission of some important documents. Since then, the star goalkeeper has taken a u-turn, and signed a long term contract with the Red Devils.
The Spaniard is currently enjoying life at the Old Trafford club under new boss Jose Mourinho, and is confident that the team will challenge for silverware under the Portuguese’s management.
“Jose is a strong character,” said De Gea, in an interview back in August. “He is a winner – he is one of the best managers in the world and we feel it. We are really comfortable with him.

“I think the club is really strong now. The players, we want to win everything and hopefully we can do it.”
But despite De Gea being visibly content with life in Manchester, brand new reports have emerged yet again, linking the 25-year-old with the same old transfer to Madrid.
Eduardo Inda, the director of OK Diario, has stated that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has already started making preparations to bring David de Gea to the Santiago Bernabeu next summer.
Inda revealed: “There’s faith in Keylor Navas, but there’s also a bit of worry creeping in. He hasn’t had the best performances in Dortmund or against Eibar. The belief is De Gea is the best goalkeeper in the world, and I’m starting to think, just a feeling, that De Gea will play at Madrid next season.
“I’m not talking for the sake of it, and I think he’ll come next year. He didn’t come this season because Zidane asked the president to keep Keylor Navas because, as well as winning the Champions League, he was getting along well with his teammates and he didn’t want to harm the group.”
However, these preparations might all turn out to be for naught, if the transfer ban on Real Madrid remains sustained.
