According to reports from Sky Sports, as cited on Calciomercato, Manchester United and Real Madrid could exchange goalkeepers in a move that would see David De Gea join the Spanish side.
Thibaut Courtois secured a transfer to European champions Real Madrid this summer, but modestly left himself off his list of the top-three glovesman.
However, he also sensationally left Manchester United’s David de Gea out, while he also snubbed the man who replaced him at Stamford Bridge for a club-record fee: Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Courtois’ dream move to Real Madrid has not gone to plan this season and there are still concerns over De Gea’s long-term future in Manchester.
The club are set to activate his one-year extension that they hold as part of his current deal, but the Spaniard will be out of contract at the end of next season.
Courtois’ own performances have left something to be desired this season in what’s been a disastrous start to life at the Santiago Bernabeu.
He’s conceded 18 goals in 11 appearances in La Liga, with Madrid currently languishing in sixth place in Spain’s top flight.
