Who is the next huge player signed by Real Madrid going to be?
There are few givens in football – but one of the certainties seems to be that La Liga giants Real Madrid will make at least one huge signing each summer – with Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez the latest two to make the move to the Bernabeu for huge fees during the summer transfer window.
Whether it happens in January or, more likely, the summer window – here are five realistic contenders for the next big money Real buy:
David de Gea (Manchester United)
Real Madrid have never needed to be profligate on signing a goalkeeper due to the seemingly ever-lasting presence of Iker Casillas – but he is unlikely to be between the Bernabeu goalposts for much longer. Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea is the obvious huge signing for Real Madrid in that position, but it would certainly cost a Galactico fee to tempt United into selling.
