Atletico Madrid will make an approach to Manchester United about bringing David de Gea back to the club.

AS says Atletico chiefs are resigned to losing on-loan No1 Thibaut Courtois back to parent club Chelsea at the end of the season and see De Gea as an ideal replacement.

A fresh loan bid has been discussed at board level, with Atletico expecting United to sign Stoke City keeper Asmir Begovic as next season's No1 and looking to send De Gea away to gain more experience.
