De Gea is available on a free transfer after leaving Manchester United at the end of June.

Courtois left training in tears after injuring his left knee, with Real Madrid since confirming he has ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament.

The injury leaves Andriy Lunin as the club’s only available senior keeper.

According to Sky Sports, De Gea has been identified as a potential replacement and contact has been made with his representatives.

Real Madrid previously tried to sign the Spaniard in 2015 but the deal collapsed due to a faulty fax machine.

The report adds that Real Madrid are also monitoring Kepa Arrizabalaga’s situation.

Kepa is currently a target for Bayern Munich, who are eyeing a loan deal with an option to buy.

De Gea remains without a club over a month after leaving the Red Devils.

Several clubs are reported to have taken an interest since, including Inter Milan.

However, De Gea turned down the chance to join the Italian giants following Andre Onana’s move to United.
