The Premier League giants have been handed a boost in the task to retain their star goalies, with Real
Madrid now looking at an alternative to signing David de Gea and Thibaut Courtois, in case a deal for
either keeper does not go through.
Spanish publication Don Balon is now suggesting that Florentino
Perez actually has a Plan C and could implement that with Keylor Navas all set to leave the Bernabeu.
The report suggests that the La Liga giants could try to bring in Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Leno, a goal-
keeper with the reputation of being one of the best in the Bundesliga at present.
Leno and Barcelona’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen have showcased a high-level of competition, as they have
risen together through Germany’s international ranks.
He is now wanted by Los Blancos, who have failed to sign the Spaniard and the Belgian thus far and are
tired of wasting their time, with no real fruit.
With the champions of Spain now looking elsewhere, the English duo will want to tie down their top
players to new contracts and end the speculations of their potential exit.
Hopefully, both the Londoners and the Manchester based side can keep hold of their star keepers, as
they look to match the level of Manchester City, who have been dominant in the top flight of English
They would not want to lose such key stars from their squads, who have helped them secure some
crucial wins over the past few seasons, which is why they will be hoping that Real look for alternatives in
order to replace Navas.
