Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is negotiating a new deal with the club, according to his agent.
As reported by The Guardian, Jorge Mendes, who also looks after the likes of Radamel Falcao and Jose Mourinho, has insisted that the Spanish international hasn't struck a deal with Spanish giants Real Madrid.
De Gea has been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu in recent time, with reports suggesting that the player could head back to Madrid in a deal worth up to a staggering £50 million.
However, that now appears not to be the case, with the shot-stopper, who has been in tremendous form throughout the campaign so far, negotiating over an extension with the Red Devils.
Speaking to reporters, the player's agent said: “I am negotiating with Manchester United about De Gea’s renewal.

“It is not true that De Gea has found a deal with Real Madrid. I’m negotiating with Manchester United his extension.”
There's no doubt about it, this revelation from Mendes will come as a major boost for supporters of Manchester United.
One of the best
De Gea, as well as being in fine form under the Louis van Gaal regime, was also the club's Player of the Year for last season.
In truth, after struggling to get to grips with the English game in his early days at the Theatre of Dreams, the Spaniard has gone from strength-to-strength at the club, and is now recognised as one of the best goalkeepers in world football.
United fans will no doubt be hoping that De Gea puts pen to paper on a new deal sooner rather than later as negotiations over his future continue.
After impressing once again against West Ham United yesterday, De Gea will currently be concentrating on the club's Premier League clash with Burnley on Wednesday night.
The Red Devils will be desperate to get back to winning ways after leaving it late to secure a draw against the Hammers yesterday.
