Real Madrid are set to turn to Stoke City goalkeeper Asmir Begovic after being snubbed in their move for Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea, as reported by the Daily Express.
Since De Gea’s exceptional performance against Everton in the Premier League, Madrid have been reportedly targeting a move for the Spain international.
However, it now seems as though the player will instead agree to a new deal with the Old Trafford club, rather than making a return to Spain.
Real have also been linked with a move for Chelsea’s goalkeeper Petr Cech, who has lost his place to Thibaut Courtois, but they might instead make a move for Stoke City star Begovic.
Begovic has impressed considerably over the last few years, and consistently seems on the cusp of a move to a larger club.
A move will not be easy, with Begovic still having two years left on his contract, but Real could almost certainly blow Stoke’s terms out of the water.
