Jorge Mendes, the agent of Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, was pictured arriving at the Red Devils' Carrington training base earlier today.
As reported by the Mirror, Mendes, who also represents the likes of Jose Mourinho, Cristiano Ronaldo and Radamel Falcao, failed to secure his client a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid in the transfer window, with De Gea now set to remain in Manchester for the foreseeable future.
De Gea, of course, is recognised as one of the leading young goalkeepers in world football, however will now be hoping to win his place back in the Manchester United side as he goes in search of securing a place in the Spain squad for next summer's European Championships in France.

Despite failing to sign for Real in the last window, the player's long-term future in the game remains in some doubt as he's set to run out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of this campaign.
It's uncertain, however, with Madrid-based broadsheet El Confidencial claiming that De Gea could now extend his contract at Manchester United, as to whether Mendes has been in Manchester to discuss a potential new deal with the club.
Dream for United
Let's be honest, De Gea signing a new contract at United would prove a dream scenario for all involved with the club. At the end of the day, despite this past summer's transfer saga, the shot-stopper remains a fans' favourite in Manchester, and will once again prove his credentials for the club sooner rather than later.
De Gea, of course, has been the club's standout player for the past two seasons, so Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal should look to get him back on side in Manchester.
The goalkeeper really can help the Red Devils climb the Premier League table this term, and he could yet have a long-term role to play at the club. It really would be quite the coup for the Red Devils.
