Manchester United star David De Gea has told Real Madrid they must act quickly if they are to secure his signature.
That is according to Spanish outlet Diario Gol, who say the goalkeeper does not want his future to become a saga of the summer.
Real left it until deadline day when they tried to sign him two summers ago, only for a faulty fax machine to ensure he stayed put.
And it is said De Gea is even ready to sign a new contract with United if the current La Liga holders do not move swiftly to get the deal done.
Furthermore, Real are said to be unwilling to meet the Red Devils' asking price of £63million – with club president Florentino Perez willing to pay just £43m.

Cristiano Ronaldo is determined to win another Champions League trophy with Real Madrid
Cristiano Ronaldo has sent a message to his Real Madrid team-mates ahead of Saturday's Champions League final clash with Juventus.
The 31-year-old wants them to prove to the world they are better than the Serie A giants and the top team in world football.
“On the day of the game there is going to be a lot of nerves and I prefer not to think much about the final," Ronaldo told Real Madrid TV.
"Too much humility isn't good, we have to prove our character and who is the best.
"They are an excellent team but so are we, I have the feeling that we are going to play a great game and we are going to win."
