Real Madrid have been targeting Manchester United shot-stopper David de Gea since antiquity, with multiple attempts at snatching the talented star collapsing miserably.
However, Florentino Perez looks rather pressing this time around, and is looking forward to roping in the 27-year-old for good over the summer.
Disregarding the interest portrayed by the illustrious club, Jose Mourinho has stressed that it’d be a grand mistake for the Mancunians to let go of their much-talented goalkeeper to the likes of the Galacticos, and wishes for the Spaniard to continue contributing to the Old Trafford outfit.
The prolific gaffer said: “Do you think a club that is trying to attract the best players is the club that is open to sell the best players? It makes no sense.
“If you want to go to that level you have to attract the best players like we did with Alexis, Matic and Pogba and so on. And don’t let our best players go.”

Despite the initial struggle endured by the former Atletico stopper posterior to his move to United, the superstar has enjoyed a meteoric rise since, gradually growing into a solid fan-favourite.
Being arguably the best goalkeeper in the world, he has kept 90 clean sheets in 226 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils.
The shot-stopper has been named United’s Player Of The Year three times, and has been selected in the PFA Team of the Season four times. The Spain international has played 300 times for United, and has also won 25 caps for his country.
Conspicuously, selling the talented Spaniard now would obviously be a huge blunder, as other English clubs would capitalise on such situation if the transfer were to actualize.
For someone holding on to the intention of framing a team capable of acquiring titles, Mourinho should unquestionably snub any offers for his star asset.
