Today's big football rumour is just great news for Manchester United fans.

According to the Express, Real Madrid have officially given up trying to bring David de Gea to the Bernabeu.

The European champions have long admired the Spanish stopper and he was all set to sign with them last summer before some transfer deadline day troubles meant the deal had to be called off.

However, the Express says that Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is happy with how Keylor Navas is doing between the sticks and doesn't see the need to bring in the United man.

It had been mentioned in recent days that De Gea was happy to stay at United and to work with Jose Mourinho and now it seems that will come to pass.
