An unexpected opportunity.
“Real Madrid are on the verge of signing David de Gea,” said British media outlet Talk Sport on the 11th (KST). It comes eight years after a failed attempt to sign him.”
De Gea ended his 12-year association with Manchester United in June.온라인바카라 It was a natural parting of the ways as United did not offer De Gea a new contract when he was out of contract.
During his 12 years at the club, De Gea won eight trophies, including the UEFA Europa League and the Premier League. He made 545 appearances for the club, the most ever by a United goalkeeper.
His weekly wages were also the highest in the team. At £375,000 (approximately $620 million), it was the highest in the entire Premier League.
Real Madrid are in a hurry. You can’t get a better goalkeeper than him right now.
He was born in 1990, which is not very old for a goalkeeper. But he’s showing signs of age.
A few seasons ago, there was a clear decline in his performance. He’s been exposed for making ridiculous errors in judgement and conceding goals due to poor reaction time.
As a free agent, he won’t cost a club a fortune to sign. Despite this, there weren’t many teams that wanted De Gea.
Inter Milan approached, but De Gea turned them down. The Nerazzurri had sold their first-choice goalkeeper Andre Onana to Manchester United and wanted to fill the position with De Gea on the cheap. For De Gea, it was a blow to his ego.
Two months passed without a club. Real Madrid approached.
In the meantime, Real Madrid had Thibaut Courtois in goal. Last year’s Yasin Award winner and one of the best goalkeepers in Europe.
However, he left in tears after suffering an injury in training. Tests revealed a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Courtois is out of action.
A major injury that will take months to recover from. He is likely to be out for the season.
Real Madrid have a red light. Andriy Lunin is the only first-team goalkeeper available.
With the leagues about to kick off, it’s not easy to find a goalkeeper who’s ready to go. De Gea, who hasn’t been able to find a club through the FA, is the best option for now. In 2015, Real Madrid came close to signing De Gea, but the deal fell through when a fax machine broke down and the paperwork didn’t arrive in time.
Aside from De Gea, Real Madrid are also keeping an eye on Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga. Kepa is also out of favour at Chelsea and is looking for a new club.
