Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has warned Real Madrid about their pursuit of David de Gea.

Mourinho has urged the European Champions to shift their attention to elsewhere to get a goalkeeper, despite their long-term interest in signing the former Atletico Madrid shot-stopper.

Los Blancos was close to signing De Gea in the summer of 2015 only for the deal to collapse in the last minute due to a faulty fax machine.

Real Madrid is also considering Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois if they fail to land the Spanish international.

De Gea extended his stay at the Old Trafford when he was unable to secure a move to Real Madrid.

 “I see him staying here, I do not know Real Madrid's intentions but, if I were them, I would think of another player,” Mourinho told Spanish TV channel La Sexta. 

Real Madrid is also considering a move for Hadjuk Split goalkeeper Karlo Letica as a cheaper alternative, according to report in Standard Sport.
