Manchester United star David de Gea is set to stay with the Old Trafford side after it was revealed that Real Madrid have turned to Tottenham Hotspur stopper Hugo Lloris instead, as reported by the Daily Express.
The Spanish giants are set to replace veteran goalkeeper Iker Casillas in the summer, and were thought to have been targeting De Gea as his replacement.
The former Atletico Madrid man has been in excellent form since the start of the season, and may have been tempted to make the switch back to his homeland.
However, Los Blancos have apparently instead turned to Lloris to fill the impending hole between the sticks.
Casillas is getting up there in the years, and Real believe a replacement for him needs to be found.
They are now set to challenge Paris Saint Germain for Lloris’ signature.
De Gea has admitted himself that he is reluctant to leave Manchester any time soon.
He said today: “In Manchester I feel wanted. If you took seriously what is written about you, you’d almost think you’re going to a thousand clubs.
“So the best you can do is pay attention to where you are. I feel very loved by Man United.”
