Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon believes that the club doesn’t need to make a move to sign Manchester United star David De Gea because Iker Casillas is still thriving in the role, Mirror reports.
The 24-year-old goalkeeper has been one of the stand out performers for Louis van Gaal’s struggling side and was heavily linked with a move to the La Liga giants in order to replace Madrid’s current number one.
He only has 18 months left on his current Old Trafford deal as the club are hoping he can extent his contract in light of a potential £30million switch to the Bernabeu.
Calderon insisted that he believes 33-year-old Casillas to still be the best keeper on the world, so making a move for De Gea is not something Madrid should consider at this point.
“We already have the best goalkeeper in the world, which is Casillas,” he said.
“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].”
