De Gea, or Courtois ? Real Madrid's search for a new goalkeeper


The Merengue have four names on their shortlist to replace Keylor Navas, but they will face a tough battle to land any of the stars they covet

While Real Madrid continued their transfer inactivity over the course of January, the goalkeeper position continues to give Florentino Perez sleepless nights. A new face between the posts to replace Keylor Navas this summer is a near certainty - and the Merengue will not lack for options.

A new No.1 was, in fact, Real's first and only priority for the window that slammed shut on January 31. Athletic star Kepa was approached by Madrid, but chose to underline his loyalty by signing a new contract at the Basque club.

That decision leaves Costa Rica international Navas in the hotseat for the next few months. After the World Cup, however, he might find his place compromised by the arrival of one of the world's elite goalkeepers.

A shortlist of four makes up Madrid's shot-stopper wishlist for 2018-19 - but who will eventually get the nod and move to the Santiago Bernabeu?
