Real Madrid opinion: Should the Galacticos sign David de Gea?
La Liga giants Real Madrid are already running hot in the current transfer window as they have made a cluster of new signings namely Eden Hazard, Ferland Mendy and Luka Jovic.
Now they have turned their attention towards Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea. The Spaniard appears to have fallen out with the Red Devils as they failed to meet his demands of expensive wages.
The 28-year-old is reluctant to renew his contract at Old Trafford and Ligue 1 giants PSG are monitoring his situation.
Madrid’s stance with Keylor Navas and the inconsistency of Thibaut Courtois
The Los Blancos signed Courtois from Chelsea last summer and the Belgian struggled to make an immediate impact. Furthermore, Keylor Navas, Madrid’s first-choice goalkeeper over a long time, also went down the pecking order of Zinedine Zidane.
The Costa Rican international, who played a great role in Madrid’s Champions League winning spree, is set for a move away from Santiago Bernabeu.
On the other hand, Courtois has conceded 48 goals and kept only 10 clean sheets in a dull looking season for the Galacticos.
Should Madrid sign De Gea?
Elsewhere, De Gea was also found off colour in an eventful season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Spanish international has only kept 10 clean sheets and United’s insipid defence played a big part in it.
Nonetheless, it doesn’t take away his stature as the world’s finest shot-stopper of his generation and the contribution for the Red Devils over the course.
His heroics against Tottenham earlier this season will also not go unnoticed. And he could provide the solution for Madrid’s defensive woes.

It’s not for the first time that De Gea’s name has emerged on Madrid’s wish list and now they should maximise their efforts to persuade him. With his addition, Zidane’s playing eleven for next season would certainly look a daunting one and put them as strong contenders for the La Liga title and the Champions League.
