Real Madrid could be on the verge of presenting a new signing after setting up a stage at the Bernabeu. 

As reported by the Mirror, the Spanish giants could be in preparation ahead of David de Gea's potential move to the club. 

The Manchester United goalkeeper, of course, has been heavily linked with a move back to the Spanish capital in recent time, with the same report from the Mirror claiming that the player wants to complete the move to Madrid. 

It's far from certain, however, as to whether the club have set the stage for De Gea, with the Mirror claiming that Manchester United rejected Real's initial offer for the top-class shot-stopper. 

One thing's for sure, this latest picture coming out of the Bernabeu, will only increase speculation, especially with the same report going on to reveal that Real have closed the stadium for tours on Friday afternoon. 

Stage is set 

Real, of course, have a great history of showing off their new signings in front of their fans, with the likes of David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo having gone down that path following their departures from Old Trafford.

While it's being suggested that the stage could be set for De Gea, it's seemingly possible that the club could unveil full-back Danilo, although the Mirror claim that he's currently injured and on holiday. 

Brilliant De Gea 

It's certainly going to be an interesting couple of days in the De Gea saga, with Manchester United seemingly determined to secure the best possible deal for his services. 

And you can't really blame them. At the end of the day, over the course of the past two years, the Spaniard has proved one of the most consistent players in English football, having secured back-to-back Player of the Year awards at the Theatre of Dreams. 

There's no doubt about it, upon his return to Spain, De Gea is now one of the leading 'keepers in world football, and will make quite the coup for Rafa Benitez, as he goes in search of success with the club. 

Valdes No.1? 

United fans, of course, will be worried, but in Victor Valdes they already have quite the replacement. Ok, so the former Barcelona man has struggled on the injury scene over the course of the last year, but Louis van Gaal may well trust him to prove his credentials in Manchester. 

With all the experience Valdes has gained throughout his fine career, there's no reason why he won't excel as the Manchester United number one for the foreseeable future. It certainly looks set to be a huge 2015/16 campaign for both Valdes and De Gea.
