David De Gea is the only Premier League player good enough to play for Real Madrid, according to Phil Neville.

Manchester United keeper De Gea has been a target for Real over the past two summers, and the Spanish club are expected to return in an attempt to sign him at the end of the season.

The Spaniard has not quite reached the stellar heights of his past few campaigns at Old Trafford, but remains one of the world’s finest goalkeepers.

Former United defender Neville believes the 26-year-old is the only Premier League player who could fit in at Real.

“I was in the Bernabeu, watching Real play Atletico in the Champions League and I saw Real play to a level that I don’t think anyone in the Premier League can get anywhere near.” he told Match of the Day.

“It’s no surprise that we don’t have any teams in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

“I looked at the Real Madrid team and I thought, how many players from the Premier League can get in that side?

“I thought maybe one – David De Gea as goalkeeper as I don’t think Keylor Navas is top, top drawer.

“But apart from that, I don’t see any other player.”
