Manchester United have turned down a £60m Real Madrid offer for David de Gea, according to Sky sources - although United insist there has been no official bid.
The Spain goalkeeper was within minutes of joining Real in August 2015 only for the deadline-day deal to collapse, and he went on to sign a new Manchester United contract.

The British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand starts on 3rd June, exclusively on Sky Sports.
That deal has two years to run, with the option of a further 12 months, and sources told Sky Sports News HQ this week that De Gea is happy at United.
Real's offer is more than three times the £18m United paid Atletico Madrid for the Spain No 1 in 2011, and almost double the current record fee for a goalkeeper.
But that has not stopped United rejecting the bid as they prepare for a return to the Champions League in the wake of their Europa League victory.
De Gea did not play in the final against Ajax as Sergio Romero was preferred.
