De Gea also informed his agent Jorge Mendes of his desire to move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

For his part, United boss Jose Mourinho is eager to see De Gea tied down amid pressure from Real Madrid. "It makes no sense".

David De Gea is still waiting for the offer of a new contract from Manchester United, according to reports. He has 18 months left on his deal, forcing the Red Devils to come to a decision: either extend their man, sell him, let him walk for free or tack on another year on his deal.

Yesterday, Mallikarjun Kharge hit out at BJP claiming that Congress had worked hard in Meghalaya and secured more seats than BJP. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the Northeast has rejected the "politics of hate" by "unanimously" voting the BJP to power.

The same story says that De Gea's representatives have been "pushing" for Manchester United to offer the goalkeeper an improved contract at the Old Trafford club. Club president Florentino Perez wants to replace Keylor Navas and having failed to convince Kepa Arrizabalaga to leave Athletic Bilbao at the end of this season has refocused on Spain's number one.

The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez are all understood to be on more money than De Gea at Old Trafford, despite the fact that he has clearly outshone all of the above this season.

Real Madrid will be on the lookout for a new goalkeeper and while all the signs point towards them turning their attention towards Thibaut Courtois, De Gea's potential availability might just tempt them to reignite their interest in the Spaniard. Of course he's going to try to give him a contract that keeps him here for much longer than that option that of course we are going to execute. Anyone of you would say the same: "David is to keep".
