'We haven't spoken to De Gea, ' Perez told the Spanish radio station Onda Cero following his re-election as president yesterday.

The De Gea story has been around for several seasons, while the deal nearly happened in 2015.

"The players are very fond of Keylor and also the coach".

The president of the Champions League winners did reveal his admiration for AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, as well as Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe as Real search for their next Galactico.

'Zidane saw him when he was 16 years old. Real stopper Keylor Navas was set to move in the opposite direction as a part of the deal. I like Keylor Navas.

'Why he wanted Gea before? "Because Zinedine Zidane did not know him [Navas]".

The emergence of 18-year-old Mbappe and Donnarumma's contract situation at AC Milan have caught the eyes of club chiefs in Madrid, though.

Real are just one of a number of clubs to be linked with Mbappe, but while Perez admits he is "following" the youngster, a decision is yet to be made if an official approach will be made. And he seems to have very good manners.

Of the Italian goalkeeper, Perez said: 'We are watching him.' Mbappe's 26-goal breakout season at Monaco has also attracted interest. "But we will not talk about what we are doing".

But, according to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, who this week won the election to continue in his position, rumours linking Real with De Gea are wide of the mark.
