Real president discusses De Gea and Morata

Florentino Perez opened up on a wide range of issues on Monday, with David de Gea and Alvaro Morata both topics of discussion.

The Real Madrid president answered a series of questions about Cristiano Ronaldo’s future, with Manchester United heavily linked with a move for their former star.

United are also said to be interested in striker Morata while Real’s long-standing interest in Red Devils keeper De Gea remains strong, despite the two clubs failing to complete a deal that had been agreed on deadline day in 2015.

Perez suggested Real had maybe missed their opportunity to bring for Atletico keeper De Gea back to Madrid.

He said: “Two years ago we had the misfortune of the fax, with things arriving late. Last year we had a possibility that we didn’t take up and now we have no agreement with Manchester United to sign him.

“The truth is that we have great goalkeepers.”

Perez went on to say that Morata is still wanted at the Bernabeu, despite the Spain striker being used as a back-up option by Zinedine Zidane. United are keen to bring the 24-year-old to Old Trafford but the Real president said he was not aware of any offers for Morata.

“Nobody wants him to go” Perez said. “He’s a Madrid player and in principle nobody is thinking he’s going to go.

“We’ve not received any offers for Ronaldo, Morata or James.”
