Carlo Ancelotti comments on the possibility of signing David de Gea

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out making a move for Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

The Red Devils shot-stopper has made the Spanish front pages in recent weeks after ousting Iker Casillas from the number one spot for Spain’s Euro 2016 qualifying victory over Luxembourg.

Since arriving in Manchester, De Gea has improved greatly and continuing on from last season’s Player of the Year winning performances he justifiably won a place in Vicente Del Bosque’s starting XI.

As a result of his impressive development, the rumours and speculation regarding a return to the Spanish capital have increased over the past week and Casillas’ drop in form has only intensified matters.

Luckily for United, Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti still has full faith in his shot-stopper and ruled out a change when pressed on the Dea Gea speculation by the Spanish press.

“The national side is different to Madrid. We’ve got other keepers here. We don’t want a transition.” He said, quoted by the Spanish publication AS.

23-year-old De Gea became the most expensive goalkeeper in British history when he completed his £17.8 million move to Old Trafford in the summer of 2011.

He has gone on to make 100 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils to date, keeping 38 clean sheets and conceding a total of 108 goals.
