Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has not spoken with goalkeeper David De Gea in months according to reports. Spanish daily AS is of the belief that Red Devils manager van Gaal and Spain international De Gea basically have a non-existent relationship despite claims that the 24-year old is set to sign a new deal.
De Gea is under contract at Old Trafford until the summer of 2016 but recent reports suggested that he was closing in on an extension.
However, it is believed that van Gaal's 'poor relationship' with his number one has kept European champions Real Madrid in with a chance of prying him away from United in the summer.
The report added that De Gea's agent, Jorge Mendes, is in constant contact with Real who continue to monitor his situation under van Gaal at the 'Theatre of Dreams'.
