Los Blancos may turn their attention to the Spaniard after missing out on Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe
The Spanish and European champions’ interest in De Gea has been reignited after coach Zinedine Zidane decided that his team does not need another outfield Galactico after failing to land Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.

Real Madrid have missed out on landing Kylian Mbappe
The progress of attacking midfielder Marco Asensio, 21, has convinced Zidane to abandon plans to recruit another striker.
Instead, Real are looking at sealing their long term pursuit of the Spain international keeper with a bid of around £46million.
De Gea nearly signed for Real in 2015 before an administration error meant his paperwork missed the transfer deadline.
United are also considering a £55m move for Monaco wideman Thomas Lemar, 21.
The Red Devils are also still keen on bringing in Inter Milan ace Ivan Perisic – as the transfer saga has continued to drag on this summer.
Despite their thrashing of the Hammers, Jose Mourinho is still determined to strengthen his side and he is battling with Manchester City to sign Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis.
