Madrid following Mbappe and Donnarumma but not interested in De Gea - Perez

Mbappe enjoyed a stunning breakout season with Monaco, scoring 26 goals and providing 14 across all competitions, to see his future in France come into question. "Zidane's liked him a lot for a while, but it's not true we were close to signing him [a few years ago] because he still hadn't turned 16".

He told Onda Cero: "Donnarumma?" 'We are following him, of course'.

'Mbappe has some very good ways and surely he'll become one of the greatest.

Amid speculation of De Gea leaving, Manchester United have been linked with Joe Hart and AC Milan prodigy Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Donnarumma, 18, has put a host of clubs on alert after announcing his decision not to sign a Milan renewal, with his contract due to expire at the end of 2017-18. Everyone in the world says he's a great player, who will replace [Gianluigi] Buffon in the [Italy] national team. "But we will not talk about what we are doing".

La Roja global keeper De Gea has always been thought to want to move back to his homeland, while his partner, pop star Edurne, continues to live Spain.

The Spain global nearly joined Madrid in 2015 until the blockbuster transfer collapsed and he continues to be linked with a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu, but Perez insisted the capital club are happy with Navas.

"We haven't spoken to De Gea", Perez told Onda Cero. Two years ago we had an issue and then the appropriate circumstances didn't arise.

'The players are very fond of Keylor and also the coach. I like Keylor Navas. Why he wanted Gea before? "Because Zinedine Zidane did not know him".
