"Real Madrid not interested in De Gea as Casillas is better" - Calderon

Real Madrid have no interest in signing David de Gea because they already have a better goalkeeper, according to former club president Ramon Calderon.

Manchester United's Spanish stopper De Gea has attracted considerable praise for his performances this season, leading many to suggest the 24-year-old could be set for a move back to his home country.

But Calderon has dismissed such speculation, insisting that current Real captain Iker Casillas is a better player, and Keylor Navas a more than capable back-up option.
'We already have the best goalkeeper in the world, which is Casillas,' Calderon told talkSPORT. 'We also have just bought Keylor Navas. I don't see any need to get any other goalkeeper.

'De Gea is perhaps also one of the top five goalkeepers in the world but Casillas can still be at the top for three or four years. I don't see any need [for De Gea].'
United last week took on another Spanish goalkeeper when former Barcelona star Victor Valdes signed an 18-month deal at Old Trafford.
