De Gea has two years left to run on his £200,000-a-week contract, with the option of another 12 months, and United value him at in excess of £60million.

Real Madrid and Barcelona square off in a rare overseas Clasico while Manchester United and Manchester City meet for the first time outside Britain as the world's top clubs strive to optimise their pre-season preparations.

"We're delighted that out of all the possible venues across the US, Manchester United and Real Madrid chose to use LA 2024's Olympic and Paralympic Village at UCLA as their pre-season training base", Los Angeles 2024 chairman Casey Wasserman said.

A new bid for De Gea will only increase tensions between the two teams after a battle over hotels and facilities ahead of their trip to the city.

According to Forbes, United are worth $1.5bn more than any other Premier League side.

Morata is currently with the Real squad in California.

But there were some issues behind the scenes towards the end of last season, not least over Mourinho's decision to keep Sergio Romero in goal for the Europa League final win over Ajax.

Manchester United play LA Galaxy at their home StubHub Center stadium, which forms part of the South Bay Sports Park, on Saturday (July 15).

United and Real have not seen eye to eye since the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to the Bernabeu in 2009, with Sir Alex Ferguson having previously stated that he would "not sell that mob a virus".

They will play each other again on August 8 in the European Super Cup, but the pair have already had 'a series of arguments' this summer.
