A fax machine prevented Real Madrid from signing David De Gea from Manchester United in 2015.

Madrid has continued to be linked with a move for the Spain international, despite bringing in Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea in 2018.

And the LaLiga giant could revisit the idea of signing De Gea at the end of the season amid doubts over the United goalkeeper's future in Manchester.
