Real Madrid renew interest in David de Gea but Manchester United rebuff advances

Manchester United have rejected new attempts from Real Madrid to sign goalkeeper, David De Gea.
De Gea almost joined Real last summer for £25m, only for the deal to fall through at the eleventh hour.
In the aftermath, the Spaniard pledged his future to Manchester United by signing a new four year deal with wages reported to be in the region of £200,000-a-week.
According to the Daily Star however, that didn't stop Real coming in with another offer to lure to Spanish number one to the Bernebeu.
First, United beat Real to Paul Pogba's signature, and now they are fending them off to hold onto their number one goalkeeper.
The old adage of 'If Real come calling, you should go,' does not appear to holding the significant weight that it once did.
Meanwhile, Manchester Evening News claim that Jose Mourinho is in the market for a new defender, but the chances of that being Leonardo Bonucci is getting less likely by the day.
The defender is reportedly being offered a new contract at Juventus where he will see his £2.9m-a-year salary increased.
Bonucci is a key component in the Juventus back three, and manager Max Allegri will be keen to keep him as they aim to make an assault on the Champions League this season.
