Metro have a claim that Manchester United fans are rather interested here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they note that Real Madrid have also joined the race for Asmir Begovic.
The Stoke City keeper has been linked with a move to various Premier League clubs in recent months, and given his form for the Potters, that does not come as that much of a surprise for us.
Now however, even our landlord has expressed a bit of shock that La Liga leaders and European giants Real Madrid are considering a move for the Bosnian stopper.
Iker Casillas has been kept on the sidelines in the league for the last couple of years by Diego Lopez, yet given the keeper is attracting interest from AC Milan, Carlo Ancelotti is keeping his options open. Not only that, but he remains unconvinced by Casillas.
As one of our punters notes, United do have David De Gea on their books and at times the Spanish stopper has been brilliant, yet has been prone to mistakes and we have noted that a move for Begovic is still not out of the question.
Given Begovic’s importance to Stoke however, he will not come cheap should Mark Hughes decide to concede defeat and cash in on his star man.
Are European giants Real Madrid really keen on landing a Stoke City player? Let us know your thoughts below.
