Real Madrid look set to reignite their long-standing interest in David de Gea this summer, as the Spanish club assesses options following injury to Thibaut Courtois.
The Belgian looks set to miss the majority of the 2023-24 season after suffering an ACL injury, and Los Blancos are expected to bring in a new goalkeeper before the transfer deadline.
David de Gea emerges as Real Madrid target
Real Madrid came within a faulty fax machine of signing de Gea eight years ago. A deal had been agreed between Manchester United and the Spanish giants, but the deal fell through in the closing moments of the transfer window.
Real Madrid’s interest in the player cooled after that saga, as they moved for Courtois. However, the Spanish club could be set to return for a long-time target this summer, according to The Times.
De Gea is available on a free transfer after ending his 12-year stay at Old Trafford in the summer. The 32-year-old played 545 times for the Red Devils, and was part of the team that won the Premier League title in 2012-13.
