“Real Madrid want to tie up a £60m deal for Manchester United star David De Gea as soon as possible this summer.”
A Real Madrid source said: “De Gea is the top priority. We expect him to come this summer.”
Should Manchester United resist the temptation to sell though, Perez will turn to Thibaut Courtois.
The Chelsea stopper enjoyed a successful three-year loan stint with local rivals Atletico.
And he has previously admitted his interest in a move back to the Spanish capital.
