London: Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has been named in the Premier League club`s squad for a pre-season tour of the United States despite reported interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid. 

The 24-year-old former Atletico Madrid player has been linked with a move to Real after goalkeeper Iker Casillas ended his 16-season spell at the Bernabeu by joining Porto.

De Gea was named in United`s 26-man squad for the trip to the U.S. where the Old Trafford club will play four games in the international Champions Cup.

However, second-choice United goalkeeper Victor Valdes has not travelled and Brazilian right back Rafael, who has been linked with a move to Benfica as part of a swap deal for Argentina winger Nicolas Gaitan, was also not included.
