Cape Town - Real Madrid are readying a world record bid for a goalkeeper as they line up a move for David De Gea.
The Express report that Carlo Ancelotti wants David De Gea to take over the gloves from Iker Casillas.
De Gea has been the best player for Manchester United this season and with Casillas on his way out of the Santiago Bernabeu, the United goalkeeper is now being linked with a move back to Spain.
Spanish sources claim Ancelotti will instruct Madrid to break the bank to sign De Gea. The Manchester United player's deal expires in June 2016 and will be allowed to open pre-contract talks in a year's time.
De Gea's £17.8 million to United in 2011 made him the most expensive goalkeeper in the English Premiership's history and now the 24-year-old shot stopper is in line for another record breaking move.
Ancelotti wants Real Madrid to sign De Gea, even if that means breaking the 2001 goalkeeping transfer record when Juventus paid Parma £33 million for Gianluigi Buffon. Reports suggest Manchester United are unnerved by the latest speculation and remain relaxed about De Gea's position at the club.
