Zidane was reappointed as Real boss this week and will be looking to guide the club to further success after previously winning the Champions League three seasons in a row.
As reported by The Mirror, Zidane is a huge admirer of De Gea, who has frequently been linked with a move to The Bernabeu in the past.
Real Madrid are reportedly set to revive their interest in Manchester United’s David de Gea
United recently triggered an option to keep De Gea at the club until the summer of 2020, and are in talks with the Spaniard over a new £350,000-a-week deal.
In 2015 Real agreed to sign De Gea but the deal didn’t go through due to the paperwork not being submitted in time.
Real paid £35million to sign Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea last summer.
However, it is believed that Zidane isn’t an admirer of Courtois; indeed he dropped the Belgian for his first game back as Real boss and started Keylor Navas instead.

Navas kept a clean sheet as Zidane’s side secured a 2-0 victory at home to Celta Vigo.
Real were knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage by Ajax.
They are currently in third place in La Liga, nine points adrift of leaders Barcelona, who have a game in hand.
