Manchester United are confident of keeping goalkeeper David De Gea at the club this summer despite renewed interest from Real Madrid, Sky sources understand.
De Gea was close to moving to Real in the summer of 2015 and the Spanish club have been keeping tabs on him ever since.
But sources have told Sky Sports News HQ that De Gea is happy with life at United under the management of Jose Mourinho, and is happy to be part of a squad that will be playing in the Champions League next season.
Spain No 1 De Gea has two years left on his current contract with the option of an extra year and United find themselves in a stronger position than two years ago.

De Gea has made 45 appearances for United this season but sat out last week's Europa League final, with Sergio Romero getting the nod for the win over Ajax.
De Gea signed for United in an £18.9m move from Atletico Madrid in 2011, and has made over 200 appearances for the club.
