Real Madrid have been long-term admirers of David De Gea, having already made multiple recorded attempts to sign him in the past, all of which have ended in failure.
However, the Spanish capital club is not yet ready to give up on the talented goalkeeper. In fact, they are now believed to be prepared to offer United two players, along with cash, to secure the services of the shot-stopper.
Regardless, the Red Devils appear set to offer an updated contract to their keeper, which would see him become one of the highest paid players at the club. Jose Mourinho has no intention of losing the Spaniard, whose current contract expires in June 2019.

According to Spanish outlet Don Balon, however, Los Blancos have casted the die to assess United’s firmness nonetheless, in hopes of procuring De Gea’s signature at the end of this season.
Real President Florentino Perez is hence willing to offer their current goalkeeper Keylor Navas and midfielder Mateo Kovacic, along with some extra money, in the hopes of mesmerising the Mancunians.
The former Atletico starlet has been one of the Old Trafford outfit’s most effective players in the past few seasons, and his value could skyrocket disregarding his falling contract, with more game time left to spend this year and the year afterwards.
Although the United gaffer has shown inclinations in acquiring Kovacic before, it’s highly unlikely that the Portuguese tactician would let go of the prestigious goalkeeper for the midfielder.
However, provided the massive financial resources Perez possess, the Real Madrid supporters might still end up witnessing a transfer being materialised sooner or later this year.
