Reports in Spain this week claimed that De Gea has a £52million buyout clause and Madrid were poised to activate it at the end of the season.
However it has now emerged that that is not the case and United would only consider selling De Gea should they fail to qualify for the Champions League and a bid of more than £66m was made.

De Gea has two seasons left on his United deal, and the club have the option to trigger a third, having signed a new contract in 2015 shortly after a move to Madrid fell through at the 11th hour.
And United are relaxed about the situation and believe De Gea will remain at Old Trafford next season.
They are also in the quarter-finals of the Europa League and face Anderlecht next month.
A top four place or winning the Europa League would mean a return to the Champions League and should be enough to convince De Gea to stay with Jose Mourinho guiding the club back towards the elite.
