Real moving quickly on Courtois’ possible season-out…could a deal that fell through eight years ago be completed?

Real Madrid has been in contact with David De Gea (33) due to a sudden injury to their starting goalkeeper.

“David de Gea has finally gotten his chance to join Real Madrid after leaving Manchester United,” the British ‘Talk Sport’ reported on the 11th (below).

On the 10th, Real Madrid announced on the club’s official website, “Thibaut Courtois (31) has been diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Courtois is scheduled to undergo surgery in the coming days.” The club announced the news of the goalkeeper’s injury.

“Courtois is likely to be out for the season before the start of the 2023-2024 campaign after suffering a cruciate ligament injury in training,” said The Athletic in England, predicting that Courtois will miss the entire season.

The club’s search for a replacement began quickly, as Curtua’s ability to make saves is crucial to the defense.

“Real Madrid have made contact with former United goalkeeper De Gea following Curtua’s injury,” reported Sky Sports, Talk Sport, and other outlets in the UK.

De Gea, who parted ways with United at the end of the 2022-2023 season, is still without a club. Real, desperate for a replacement for Courtois, approached De Gea as they could take him on a free transfer.

According to Talk Sport, “Real approached De Gea within hours of announcing Courtois’ cruciate ligament injury and De Gea, whose move to Real Madrid fell through eight years ago, finally has a chance to move to Los Blancos. De Gea had agreed a deal with the club in 2015, but a fax machine glitch caused the move to fall through.”온라인바카라

“Shortly after Courtois’ injury, Real met with the agent of De Gea, who is currently without a club,” Sky Sports also reported.

Of course, De Gea is not the only name being mentioned as a possible replacement for Courtois. According to Sky Sports, “Real are also monitoring the situation of another Spanish goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, 29, of Chelsea. Kepa is currently Bayern Munich’s top transfer target and the Bavarians are pushing to sign him on loan.”
