Real Madrid are preparing to formalise attempts to sign David de Gea next week with club president Florentino Perez ready to move for the Manchester United goalkeeper following his international commitments with Spain, the Telegraph reports.
The Red Devils are almost certain that the Spaniard will leave Old Trafford in the summer with boss Louis van Gaal happy to use the goalkeeper as a way to sign striker Karim Benzema.
The Frenchman is also a target for Arsenal although according to his agent the Spanish giants want to keep him at the club.
"I haven't met with any club in London," agent Karim Djaziri told Marca.
"Not with United and not with anyone else. We haven't held talks with anyone other than Real Madrid.
"What is Karim going to do in Manchester? He's happy in Madrid. He doesn't want to leave.
"Benzema would only leave if Real Madrid told him he was surplus to requirements, because he isn't going to leave of his own accord".
