Madrid torn between Kepa and Man United’s De GeaNovember 20, 2017
Real Madrid are weighing up a move for either Athletic Club’s Kepa or Manchester United’s David De Gea, according to reports.
Long have Madrid been keen admirers of both Spanish international keepers and it now seems that the Bernabeu club will look to make a move for one in the January transfer window.
Whilst current number one Keylor Navas has been performing well; Madrid officials have been interested in a number of options who they feel can provide a long-term option.
Man United’s De Gea was seemingly a long shot with his future at the English club firmly rooted, leaving Kepa as the next option.
But, following a report in El Larguero of Cadena Ser radio, it now emerges that Madrid president Florentino Perez is keen to move for De Gea.
The report claims that Madrid believe a bid of around €70m will see Old Trafford officials part company with the former Atletico Madrid man.
Madrid’s keeper worries have continued of late with Keylor Navas on the sidelines for the weekend’s 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid.
Madrid have picked themselves up after a poor start to the La Liga season, but the draw with rivals Atletico on Saturday evening has left them ten points behind league leaders Barcelona.
