Manchester United have no intention of bringing down their £35million valuation of Real Madrid target David de Gea, according to reports from the Mirror.
The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Real the past season, and the Spain number one is eager to return to his home country.
With just 12 months remaining on his current contract, the La Liga giants were hoping the Red Devils would allow him to leave on a cheaper fee.
However, United are unwilling to compromise on their £35million price tag, insisting that any bid for their star shot-stopper will have to surpass the current £32million world record goalkeeper transfer fee held by Gianluigi Buffon.
During discussions, Man United tried to demand Sergio Ramos in a potential swap deal for De Gea, but the 10-time European champions were themselves unwilling to let the centre-back leave lower than their own £65million valuation.
De Gea played 43 games in all competitions last season, keeping 14 clean sheets.
