Real Madrid may make a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois if they fail to capture David de Gea this summer, according to Guillem Balague.
Spanish football expert Balague said:
“There is a private agreement by which Real Madrid could actually get David de Gea if they pay 50m euros. There is a time limit to that.
“I’m pretty sure Mourinho will want De Gea to stay but it will be a decision that will involve both De Gea and Real Madrid.
“At the beginning of the season everyone expected De Gea to be the next Galactico but now the situation has changed, not only because Jose Mourinho has arrived at Manchester United, but also Keylor Navas has done really well.
“So what Real have done in recent weeks in case they don’t get De Gea, is try to convince Thibaut Courtois to go to Real Madrid.”
