Reports: Real To Ditch De Gea Pursuit For Former La Liga Star

Spanish giants Real Madrid are reportedly ready to ditch their efforts to sign Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea and chase another former La Liga star for the position instead.

According to the Daily Mirror, Real president Florentino Perez has told the Spain No. 1 they will move for Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois if he does not want to force a move away from Old Trafford.

Los Blancos apparently still consider the Red Devils shot-stopper as their primary goalkeeper target, but are not willing to wait any longer for him as they feel they have already wasted three windows trying to secure his services.

Chelsea are aware the Spanish giants are hovering around their Belgian star, and recent reports suggest that they are looking to offer Courtois a new deal before Real potentially contact them for his services.

The Stamford Bridge star has less than two years left on his current contract with the London club, and has made it clear he is only willing to talk about a possible extension at the end of the season.

This reported claim leaves the window open for the Madrid side to make a move for the goalkeeper before he sits down with the Blues.
