Real Madrid switch goalkeeping attentions from Man United to Chelsea

Real Madrid are considering switch their attentions from David De Gea to Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, according to Spanish newspaper AS

Last summer, Los Blancos infamously failed to push a deal for De Gea over the line after a lengthy pursuit of the Manchester United stopper.

Despite signing a new deal at Old Trafford afterwards, the Madrid giants were widely expected to renew their interest this time around as they hunt for a long-term successor to Iker Casilas.

However, the report suggests the could soon cast their eyes over the ongoing Courtois situation at Stamford Bridge instead.

Though he is first-choice in West London, he has a strong history with La Liga after spending three years on loan with Atletico Madrid under Diego Simeone.

Keylor Navas has been in good form between the sticks for the club this season, though is not viewed as a long term solution in the Spanish capital.
