United's number one continues to be linked with a move back to his homeland, with a fee in excess of €50m being reported as the asking price, despite having just a year left to run on his current deal.

The Red Devils have been strongly linked themselves with both club captain Sergio Ramos and Gareth Bale, with cash-plus-player deals mooted for both.

However the Daily Star believes it is a goalkeeper currently at the Bernabeu, Keylor Navas, that is on United's radar.

The Costa Rican would be surplus to requirements if United’s De Gea moves to Madrid as expected, and Arsenal have previously been linked with him.

With Iker Casillas having moved to Porto, Navas looks set to start this season as Los Blancos’ number one keeper in the absence of any deal for De Gea.

Navas was backup to Casillas last term and only played in six La Liga matches for his new side, keeping three clean sheets.
