De Gea hasn’t featured for United in their opening five Premier League games of the season amid continued talk of a potential switch to the 10-time European champions this summer.
De Gea moved to Manchester United from Atletico Madrid in 2011 and was widely acclaimed at United’s star man last term as the side secured Champions League qualification.
The 6ft 4ins stopper has recently forced himself into the Spain line-up since taking over from record appearance maker and former Real skipper Iker Casillas between the sticks.
