Real Madrid failed two summers ago in the attempt to sign De Gea from Manchester United. Los Blancos have two great goalkeepers as Keylor Navas and Kiko Casilla but Florentino Pérez knows that De Gea should be the Real Madrid keeper in the future seasons.
De Gea is now the first Spain national team keeper and he made a great performance in the last match against Macedonia for the qualifying of 2018 Russia’s World Cup.
De Gea, who has consolidated in Lopetegui’s line up, made several saves and he was decisive in Spain’s victory. Just a couple of days later, his name is again related to Los Blancos.
According to Marca, although Real Madrid are satisfied with the performances of Keyor Navas and Casilla, Los Blancos continue believing that De Gea is the perfect keeper and Florentino Pérez will reconsider his signing at the end of this season.
De Gea’s signing won’t be easy because after Real Madrid’s failure a couple of summers ago in the attempt to sign the Spanish goalkeeper, his price has grown considerably. In fact, according to Marca, the price of De Gea will be around €60M, a very high amount if we are talking about a goalkeeper. With José Mourinho at Old Trafford’s bench the negotiations will be even more difficult. The Portuguese manager demanded in his arrival to Manchester the guarantee that David De Gea will not leave the Red Devils.
Real Madrid have two great goalkeepers in these moments. When Iker Casillas left Madrid, one of the main concerns was not finding a replacement. Keylor was maybe the best player in the last year especially at the beginning of the season. The Costa Rican goalkeeper is actually one of the best keepers in the world being a key player for Zidane. At the beginning of this season we saw Kiko Casilla made really good performances and showing a high level. Do you think is necessary the signing of a new keeper?
