Real Madrid mull signing ex-Man Utd star for Ancelotti

 Real Madrid are contemplating a move for former Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea for the upcoming 2024-25 season in a bid to bolster manager Carlo Ancelotti’s squad.

Following his departure from Old Trafford last summer, De Gea has remained without a club, yet he has refrained from retiring, indicating his desire for a return to professional football.

The Spanish goalkeeper, revered for his remarkable tenure at Manchester United, featuring in 545 appearances, holds a distinguished status among the Red Devils faithful.

However, the club opted for a change in their goalkeeping department, leading to De Gea’s departure, with Andre Onana brought in as his replacement.

Reports from Relevo (via Tribal Football) suggest that De Gea harbored hopes of a reunion with his homeland club, Real Madrid, particularly after Thibaut Courtois endured an injury setback at the commencement of the season.

Despite considerations, Los Blancos opted to secure Kepa Arrizabalaga on loan from Chelsea to fill the void in goal, bypassing the opportunity to recruit De Gea.

With Kepa set to return to Chelsea and Andriy Lunin seeking increased playing time, Real Madrid find themselves revisiting the prospect of acquiring De Gea’s services.

Lunin’s potential departure, amid interest from various European clubs, could prompt Real Madrid to seek another goalkeeping option, and De Gea emerges as a viable candidate due to his wealth of experience and current availability.
