Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea would consider a move to Real Madrid if the Spanish giants made a bid, reports Marca.

Earlier this week Real Madrid were reportedly interested in making the Manchester United goalkeeper the long-term successor to Iker Casillas.

The Bernabeu legend has suffered a stark drop off in form, and he was poor again for Spain this week as they went down to Slovakia 2-1 in the shock result of the international break so far.

He was first benched under Jose Mourinho, and Carlo Ancelotti opted for a rotation system with Diego Lopez before Lopez left for AC Milan over the summer. Real Madrid signed Keylor Navas, but he is not believed to be seen as the club’s answer to replace Casillas. Instead, he is an option for cup games and in case of emergency.

Cech an option?

There’s a few options for Real Madrid, with Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech reportedly unhappy at Stamford Bridge after being replaced by Thibaut Courtois.

But De Gea is thought to be the priority, with Real Madrid willing to let Iker Casillas leave should they bring in the United stopper. Arsenal and Liverpool have been linked with Casillas.

De Gea interested?

And Spanish newspaper Marca reports that the £25m-rated De Gea, who has also been talked about to replace Casillas as Spain number one permanently, is believed to be open to talks with the La Liga giants.

His past with Atletico Madrid would not be a problem, and it's worth remembering that his agent is Jorge Mendes, who represents Cristiano Ronaldo and has strong links to Real Madrid.
