Real Madrid ‘plot fresh £70m bid for David de Gea’ this summer

Real Madrid will reportedly attempt to lure Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea to the Bernabeu again in the summer.

The La Liga giants are a long-time admirer of the player, and almost signed him in 2015 before a delay in the necessary paperwork prevented the move from taking place.

De Gea signed a new contract in September, but with his form dipping in recent weeks United may be willing to cash in at the end of the season.

And according to The Sun the Red Devils would demand a fee of around £70m for the 29-year-old.

De Gea was born in Madrid, and started his career at Real's bitter rivals Atletico before making the move to Manchester in 2011.

Since then he has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, yet he has made a number of high-profile errors recently, including dawdling on a clearance and allowing Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin to score last weekend.

There have been calls for on-loan keeper Dean Henderson to replace the Spaniard next season after impressing for Sheffield United.

It remains to be seen whether Madrid are willing to pay such a high asking price for de Gea, especially given the fact they splashed out £35m on current No.1 Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea just two years ago.
