Manchester United are in talks with goalkeeper David de Gea about a new contract, according to reports.

The BBC and a number of national newspapers said on Thursday night that the Spain goalkeeper was talking about a new deal, just 10 days after a move to Real Madrid collapsed.

De Gea looked set to join Madrid on deadline day in a long-mooted move, only for administration errors to scupper a deal.

Pictures carried by the Daily Mail showed De Gea's agent, Jorge Mendes, in Manchester on Thursday afternoon, giving rise to talk of negotiations.

De Gea has not played for United this season as a result of the uncertainty surrounding him, but could be in line to return against Liverpool this weekend.

United manager Louis van Gaal is set for his first club media commitments since deadline day on Friday.

There was no comment from the club on Thursday night.
