Real Madrid are eyeing Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea as a long-term replacement for Iker Casillas.
The Spanish champions and their manager Jose Mourinho have a strong relationship with De Gea’s agent Jorge Mendes and feel they can exploit that to tempt De Gea back to Spain in the foreseeable future.
Casillas has already stated that he sees De Gea as his successor in Spain’s national team and feels he can bring him on by working with the keeper at the Bernabeu. Suggestions in Spain that De Gea is homesick in Manchester have not been confirmed by United.
He has been in and out of the United team and is not certain to start against Braga in the Champions League on Tuesday, which sources in Spain feel is contributing to his restlessness. Earlier this month, De Gea admitted he often finds life tough at United.
