Real Madrid have ended their interest for the signature of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea and rather chosen to keep confidence in the current first choice keeper Keylor Navas, as indicated by reports.
The Champions League winner almost signed De Gea on deadline day two years back however refrained to deliver their official paperwork on time.
However again this year the La Liga champions were rumoured to be involved in a move for the current Spanish No. 1 to bait him far from Old Trafford, but as indicated by Popular Spanish newspaper MARCA, they have now chosen not to seek after him because of his £65million asking price.
The news will be an enormous lift to United manager Jose Mourinho who has acted tough in the course of the last six months to convince De Gea to stay at Old Trafford.
The report also stated that if an arrangement for De Gea was unworkable in future then the Spanish side would follow Milan star Gianluigi Donnarumma. His agent Mino Raiola has reportedly offered him to Real but the Spanish side want to sit tight for one more year before marking the goalkeeper on a free transfer in the next season.
The Spanish giants are certainly satisfied with their first choice keeper and his aide Kiko Casilla and prepared to proceed with them at least for one more year.
Navas has experienced harsh criticism frequently last season for his unsteady shows however as per the report, his job under Zidane is at this moment safe.
The 30-year-old recently also praised his Madrid boss for showing immense in him and suggested that he will do his best in the upcoming season to return the gratitude.
“Confidence is always important. I always have to thank the people who supported me. I must say thank you to Zidane and one way of showing gratitude is to play the best possible so that his decisions are backed up.
“Everyone likes to have people who support you in tough moments,” Navas said.
