Despite the less than convincing performances of David De Gea between the posts at Old Trafford, Marca report that Manchester United are after another Spanish goalkeeper from Atletico Madrid.

The Madrid based publication claim that Sir Alex Feruguson’s brother and scout, Martin turned up to the training ground just last Sunday in the hope of seeing David Gil in action for the Atletico B side, yet he was left disappointed with the keeper only sitting on the bench.

Martin Ferguson has been sent on scouting assignments to Spain before and has been seen at the Atleti training ground more than once in the last few weeks. United are seriously interested in the young keeper and see him as one for the future.

United have even sent representatives to training sessions to watch Gil who has now progressed to the B side at the club and represented Spain at the Under-16s all the way up to the Under-20 level.

United of course landed De Gea for £17 million in June 2011 – a record fee for a goalkeeper in Britain and the Red Devils look determined to do it again with another David.
