Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has been promised a move to Real Madrid by his agent, according to reports.
The Daily Express cite reports in Spain when claiming super agent Jorge Mendes will look to facilitate a move from England back to his homeland at some point in the future, with speculation currently rife over the stopper's contract.
De Gea has been with Manchester United since 2011, with Sir Alex Ferguson spending big to bring the youngster to Old Trafford. Initially, he was under huge pressure after some high-profile mistakes.
However, he's gradually improved for the Red Devils, and is now one of the finest keepers in the Premier League at just 23-years-old. He has already made over 100 appearances for the club.
Focus has now switched to the former Atletico Madrid starlet's contract, and whilst he is tied to Louis van Gaal's side until 2016, speculation is mounting that he could replace Iker Casillas at the Santiago Bernabeu.
He also has years left on his deal, and is currently tied to Los Blancos until 2017. There is also a clause in the contract with means that could be extended by another year, if Carlos Ancelotti opts to play the veteran.
A move for De Gea will likely depend on how that contract pans out, but the report claims Mendes has made a promise to the Manchester United star that he will play in white back in the Spanish capital one day.
Red Devils fans know all about Mendes, of course, given his ties to Cristiano Ronaldo. He's also the agent of Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao - two players to end up at Old Trafford this summer.
It remains to be seen whether that's good or bad for Manchester United, although this reported 'promise' is definitely not what the club's fans will want to hear.
