Madrid step down interest in United goalie

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has reportedly said that acquiring Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is no longer a priority for the club.

Zizou was speaking in a press conference following their monumental 3-2 Champions League group stage victory over Borussia Dortmund, where the tactician stated - I have two goalkeepers, understand? I am a Real Madrid coach and I am happy with my two goalkeepers, I will always say the same.

De Gea has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu ever since a move from United to the Spanish giants fell through on transfer deadline day of the summer of 2015. Speculations had continued to suggest that Madrid is still interested in acquiring the stopper, with further rumours claiming that the Los Blancos would offer up winger Gareth Bale to the Red Devils in exchange.

Madrid’s cooled interest may be attributed to two factors - the emergence of current option Keylor Navas as a reliable doorman this season and the potential acquisition of Athletic Bilbao goalie Kepa Arrizabalaga in January, which will fully satisfy the club’s goalkeeping needs.
