Real Madrid eye De Gea switch

Real Madrid eye De Gea switch

Real Madrid are seriously considering the possibility of signing Man Utd goalkeeper David De Gea, who has had mixed fortunes at Old Trafford since joining the club in 2011.

Young Spanish goalkeeper has been struggled to adjust to the Premier League style of game, not least of all due to the sheer lack of physique. And Real Madrid are ready to offer the talented keeper an escape route from Old Trafford.

Casillas has long been touted as the best goalkeeper in the world, but he picked up an injury and could be on the sidelines up until the end of the season. However this is not the only reason. Real Madrid are planning for the future and consider De Gea to be an ideal long-term replacement to their firm number one.

The Meringues will try to sign the player in summer, irrespectively of whether Jose Mourinho stays at the club.

According to the recent speculations, Man Utd have convinced Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic to sign a pre-contract agreement with the club and he is poised to join the Red Devils in summer. Should the deal go through that would cast serious doubts on De Gea’s long-term future at the club.
