That's the claim of Sky Sports News.

That's not to suggest that he would have taken Real up on any offer though - with De Gea reportedly keen to repay the loyalty showed to him during his early struggles at Old Trafford.

But Madrid had other targets this summer with Alisson Becker, now at Liverpool, and Jan Oblak mentioned as options before they signed Courtois from United's rivals Chelsea for around £35million.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move back to his homeland for a number of years, with Real's quest to replace standout goalkeeper Iker Casillas having rumbled on since his departure from the club three years ago.

The Guardian reports that Manchester United are confident of tying David de Gea down to a new contract and extending his stay at the club.

This is a player who now feels like an integral part of the club's fabric.

Real nearly landed De Gea back in 2015, only for a fax machine "error" to scupper the deal very late on deadline day.

Only seven players have featured in the end-of-year team more times than that including former United trio Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville all on six.

Do you think De Gea deserves a big-money contract at United?
