Read all info about the new campaign here!

Option One: Iker Casillas (1999 – 2015)

A product of Real’s famed La Fabrica academy, Iker Casillas became the youngest goalkeeper to win the UEFA Champions League, at the tender age of 19, in 2000. The former Spain international went on to make 725 appearances for his boyhood club. He is currently the record holder for clean sheets in the Champions League with 52 shutouts. His trophy cabinet isn’t too bad either, with his biggest titles being three UEFA Champions League winner’s medals as well as six LaLiga titles. In addition, he is also a FIFA World Cup winner and a two-time European Championship winner. Basically, he has won everything there is to win in football, and he served the mighty Real Madrid with great distinction.

Option Two: Keylor Navas (2014 – 2019)

Joining from Levante for €10 million in 2014, the acrobatic goalkeeper is arguably one of the greatest signings in the club’s history. According to footystats.org, the Costa Rica international keeps an average of four clean sheets every 10 matches, which is even better than that of Gianluigi Buffon, who has six clean sheets every 17 matches. The Real shot-stopper also boasts an impressive trophy cabinet, which includes four Champions Leagues titles, one LaLiga trophy and three UEFA Super Cup wins. It’s fair to say he took on the monumental task of replacing Casillas with great success.

Option Three: Thibaut Courtois (2017 – present)

The big Belgian goalkeeper signed for Real in the 2017/18 season for a sizable €35 million. Courtois joined Los Blancos after being named the Goalkeeper of the 2018 FIFA World Cup and with high expectations. However, life in the Spanish capital hasn’t been as easy as he had hoped. That said, one must also factor in Madrid’s transitional period, with no more than three managers in the past two years, which hasn’t made things easy for Courtois. Despite this, we still expect big things from the 27-year-old, who won The Best FIFA Goalkeeper award in 2018.
