London: Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly coming round to the idea of selling David de Gea to Real Madrid next summer.

De Gea is a long-term transfer target for Real and remains top of president Florentino Perez's wish-list should the European champions decide to replace Keylor Navas.

Real almost signed De Gea in 2015 only to be denied by a faulty fax machine on deadline day, but Perez could finally get his man next year as Mourinho is seriously considering allowing the 26-year-old to leave.

But Mourinho will only sanction De Gea's departure to Real if he is able to sign Raphael Varane in return.

Mourinho signed Varane from Lens while he was manager of Real in 2011.

The 24-year-old France star has since established himself as one of the top centre backs in world football.
