Real Madrid will make a move to try and sign David De Gea from Manchester United this summer, according to Kaveh Solhekol.

The Spanish shot-stopper is widely regarded as one of the finest goalkeepers in the Premier League and he has been earning plenty of praise for his solid performances for the Red Devils in recent seasons.

De Gea came close to signing for Real Madrid back in the summer of 2015 before the move fell through at the final hour due to paperwork issues.

However, Real Madrid have continued to be linked with a move to bring the Spain international to the Bernabeu, and Sky Sports reporter Solhekol has claimed that the Spanish side are indeed interested in signing the shot-stopper again this summer.

Speaking on the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast, Solhekol said: “Sky Italy say Real Madrid will try to sign David De Gea this summer. We’ve heard that.

“If they don’t get their number one choice, Real Madrid will look at Alisson.”

Manchester United completed their first two signings of the summer transfer window this week after wrapping up deals for both Diogo Dalot and Fred.

The Red Devils are thought to be on the lookout for a number of other signings as they look to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League next season.

Jose Mourinho’s men finished second in the table and 19 points behind Manchester City last term.
