Barcelona superstar Neymar passed a medical at Real Madrid, claims Florentino Perez

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez played down the possibility of a move for Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea and said no bids have been received for Alvaro Morata or James Rodriguez.

A year later, moreover, Perez felt the squad wasn't complete, even with the addition of Bale, and chose to sign 2014 World Cup stars, James Rodriguez, Toni Kroos and Keylor Navas for a combined £95 million.

"I wanted De Gea because I did not know Keylor Navas".

The likes of Kylian Mbappe, Eden Hazard and David de Gea have been rumoured, but it seems United fans can breathe a little easy given the comments of Fiorentino Perez, the Los Blancos president.

And Perez, on the subject of De Gea, claimed that the club would not approach Man United for the shot-stopper this summer.

It looked certain De Gea was set to leave after six years at Old Trafford and United were determined to get the best possible price they can for the Spain global, but the landscape has changed over the last two weeks.

"Everyone says he's a great player, he's going to be the substitute for Buffon", Perez said.

After tearing it up for Santos and the Brazilian national team, Neymar quickly became one of the hottest talents in world football and a long queue for his signature formed, and featured the very biggest clubs in the world. Of course we are watching him. "But we will not talk about what we are doing".

De Gea was once again impressive last season, making 45 appearances in all competitions. "When [coach Zinedine] Zidane comes back, we will see what he thinks of Donnarumma's case".

Perez also signed a number of other high-profile attacking players, including Robinho and Julio Baptista, but one aspect he fatefully neglected was defence.
