Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has remained coy over whether the La Liga giants will again try to sign Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea following the dramatic deadline day deal collapse.
Spanish newspaper AS reported that De Gea may sign a new deal with the Red Devils as he believes it is the only way he will regain his spot in Louis van Gaal’s side.
Spain boss Vicente del Bosque warned the 24-year-old could miss out on EURO 2016 selection should he not play for United this season.

Van Gaal left De Gea out of the squad for United’s opening four Premier League fixtures with the Dutch boss believing the shot-stopper was not in the right mind frame due to uncertainty over his future.
Perez says he is unsure if Real Madrid will make a move for De Gea during the January transfer window.
“From now on I have no idea what will happen,” Perez is quoted as saying by International Business Times.
“This is an issue that has just happened and we still can’t talk about it yet. I just can say what we did and what we tried. Today this is not the issue. We have much to talk about and discuss.”
