August 11, 2023 | by

Thibaut Courtois was injured before kickoff. Real Madrid is looking for a new goalkeeper.

“Courtois has ruptured the cruciate ligament in his left knee,” the club announced on its official website on Tuesday. Courtois will undergo surgery in the next few days,” the club announced on its official website. The injury is said to be severe. According to British publication The Athletic, he is likely to be out for the season.

With the start of the season just around the corner, Real are quickly looking for a goalkeeper. David de Gea, who recently stopped working with Manchester United, has been mentioned. “De Gea has seized the opportunity to join Real after leaving United,” British outlet TalkSPORT reported on Nov. 11.

De Gea joined United from Atletico Madrid in the 2011-12 season. He was the choice of legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson. De Gea has been in goal for United for over a decade. He was once a world-class goalkeeper, but his form declined after the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Last season, De Gea continued to be the Red Devils’ goalkeeper, keeping 17 clean sheets in all competitions in the English Premier League (EPL). De Gea won the Golden Glove for the most clean sheets in the league. Despite this, there were many calls for De Gea’s release. Aside from his saves, his buildup game was an issue. In fact, last season, De Gea faltered in the buildup and made several costly mistakes. This led to his departure from United.

Without a club, De Gea was looking for a team, but due to his age and high salary, there weren’t many interested in signing him. Saudi Arabia made a move for De Gea. The Saudis, who have been spending heavily on players lately, approached De Gea. Al Nasr offered £13 million a year, but De Gea wanted to stay in Europe.

De Gea’s opportunity came when Courtois got injured. Courtois is arguably the best goalkeeper in the world. At nearly two meters tall, he has the perfect body type for a goalkeeper. His long arms allow him to save shots that are headed for the corner. His height and reaction time allow him to make excellent saves. He’s also very stable underfoot.

Last season, Real Madrid didn’t live up to their reputation. They finished second in the league and reached the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League (UCL). That’s not bad, but given Real’s reputation, Ancelotti’s report card was less than satisfactory. They avoided relegation by winning the Copa del Rey, but Courtois shone. He kept 17 clean sheets in 49 games, including cup competitions. 메이저놀이터

Real embraced supernova Judd Bellingham this summer. Bellingham’s transfer fee was a staggering €103 million, with an additional €30.9 million in options. Real will challenge for the top of Europe again. However, Courtois will have a big shoes to fill.
