Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea added yet another spectacular save to his brimming collection against Italy on Thursday night.

Picked ahead of Iker Casillas for Spain's friendly with Antonio Conte's side, the 25-year-old scrambled back towards his goal line to deny Lorenzo Insigne's delicate chip from outside the area with the game on level terms at 1-1.

Insigne broke the deadlock shortly after the hour mark before Athletic Bilbao's Artiz Aduriz scored an equaliser in the 70th minute.

In what was a pulsating and entertaining affair, Spain were thereafter forced to rely upon the acrobatics of De Gea to keep the scoreline at one apiece.

Such is the quality of De Gea that he has been voted Player of the Year in consecutive seasons at Old Trafford and appears likely to claim a third given his array of heroic performances this campaign.

However, displays for United and Spain will have only increased interest across Europe, with La Liga's Real Madrid due to launch yet another pursuit for De Gea this summer after infamously failing to lure him to the Bernabeu last year.

Red Devils fans might take solace from the fact their world-class 'keeper has repeatedly reiterated his loyalty to United, but that might not count for much with the ruthless Real involved.
