 The 27-year-old has continued to be chased by the Spanish side and were they to make an offer, would likely have to break the £100million barrier.

 Instead, the goalkeeper has decided to put pen to paper.

 De Gea is currently in Russia with Spain and has been questioned by the country’s media about his future this week.

“I don’t think [Real Madrid president] Florentino Perez has my number,” he said.

“I don’t know if I’ll be the goalkeeper at Real Madrid. “What I do know is that I’m very happy in Manchester.

What I want is to win titles, like every other player. “There’s no lacking in winning titles [at United] – we have to improve. “We are a big club, we are not here to take second place. We have to improve and make this club great.”
