Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea was nearly a Real Madrid player last summer before a botched transfer paperwork wrecked the deal at the last hour. After that, the player has signed a four year contract with Manchester United but the rumor of Real Madrid coming back for him never really died.
The Madrid giants have the chance to activate his release clause of £39 million, but according to reports from AS, the Los Blancos have decided not to act upon it. While the reports say that the club president is still keen on the player, Zinedine Zidane has promised Keylor Navas that he will be the no. 1 at Real Madrid.
David De Gea has been awarded the player of the year by the club again this year after he put on a stellar performance. According to reports Mourinho too, seemed to have held a one on one discussion with the player and assured him about his position in the club.
