Real Madrid are ready to make a huge bid for Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, according to the Express.
The Spanish shot-stopper, who has enjoyed a remarkable campaign so far, has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu for some time now, as uncertainty surrounding his long term future at Old Trafford continues.
De Gea is out of contract at the Theatre of Dreams at the end of next season, with the club seemingly relaxed about his situation at the club.
Record 'keeper bid
And now it appears that Real chiefs are ready to make a record bid for a 'keeper in an attempt to bring De Gea back to Madrid. De Gea, of course started his career at Atletico, but it remains to be seen as to whether he's be interested in moving to their rivals in 2015.
With the current record for a goalkeeper standing at £33 million, the young Spaniard certainly wouldn't come cheap, but would prove quite the coup for the club as they go in search of replacing veteran Iker Casillas.

Manchester United fans, though, will be desperate for the 24-year-old to stay at the club for the long term after his outstanding past 16 months at the club.
Last season, despite the struggles under previous boss David Moyes, De Gea was exceptional as he won the club's Player of the Year award. And this season, he's improved even further, and even secured the past two Player of the Month awards as his wonderful form continues between the sticks.
Impressive De Gea
De Gea once again put in an inspired display for the Red Devils in their 3-0 victory over Liverpool this past weekend as he frustrated the likes of Raheem Sterling and Mario Balotelli.
Next up for United and Co. will be a trip to Villa Park on Saturday afternoon, as Van Gaal's side target a seventh consecutive victory in England's elite division.
