FIFA have suspended Real Madrid’s transfer ban and Florentino Perez is already thinking of how he can spend money on improving Zinedine Zidane’s squad this summer.
Perez reportedly feels like he owes it to De Gea to bring him to the Bernabeu after the farcical manner in which his transfer to Real Madrid collapsed on the final day of the summer transfer window, while Lewandowski has been identified as the team’s next ‘Galactico’ signing.

Earlier this week, it was revealed - by the Telegraph - that Lewandowski was ready to snub the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea in order to secure a dream move to the Bernabeu this summer.
The Polish striker, they claim, has his heart set on joining Los Blancos.
United can command big fee for De Gea
De Gea felt the same way last season and looked certain to join Real Madrid at the beginning of September, only for the two clubs to agree a €30 million fee three minutes after the deadline had passed.
The whole episode left De Gea upset and angry - and he responded by signing a new four-year contract with Manchester United.
That the 24-year-old is tied to Old Trafford until 2019 leaves the Red Devils in a strong position, although it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that they have a gentleman’s agreement in place with the Spanish shot-stopper.
Provided Real Madrid come in with a good enough offer, United may reluctantly allow De Gea to leave Old Trafford - similar to the deal that took Cristiano Ronaldo to Madrid in 2009.
De Gea still 'wants' to sign for Real Madrid
AS understand that De Gea still wants to return to Madrid, despite putting pen-to-paper on a new deal, and has been assured by Perez that the transfer will eventually happen.
