'Real don't need 
de Gea'

Former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon has suggested the Spanish giants have no need to sign Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

De Gea has been linked with a move back to his homeland with Real, while the Red Devils have this month brought in another high-profile shot stopper in-ex-Barcelona man Victor Valdes.

But asked if he could see Real recruiting de Gea, Calderon told talkSPORT: "I don't know, but what I do know is we already have the best goalkeeper in the world, who is Iker Casillas.

"We also have just bought Keylor Navas. I don't see any need to get any other goalkeeper.

"De Gea is perhaps also one of the top five goalkeepers in the world but Casillas can still be at the top for three or four more years.

"I don't see any need (for de Gea)."
