Uncertainty looms around the future of Keylor Navas at Real Madrid
Uncertainty looms around the future of Keylor Navas at Real Madrid

Real Madrid's performance this season has been no way near the level they achieved in the previous years. Their hopes of retaining the La Liga title might be over as the gap between the league leaders and arch-rivals Barcelona, only seems to be getting bigger.

The most shocking of all, however, was when the European champions were knocked out of the Copa Del Rey by mid-table team Leganes.

This season has proven that the goalkeeping department is going to need sweeping changes if the Spanish giants are to perform better next season. Madrid's decision to stick with current goalkeepers Keylor Navas and Kiko Casilla has resulted in disappointment.

Casilla has been largely iffy while Navas, who has been great for Madrid in previous seasons has struggled with injuries. Both of them are already in their early 30’s which is a clear indication that they must sign a world-class goalkeeper who can be relied upon for the long term.

Madrid will surely have this in mind when the summer transfer window opens and it is no doubt that they will look for the best. Here are 5 possible goalkeepers Real Madrid could sign this summer:

#5 Gianluigi Donnarumma

ACF Fiorentina v AC Milan - Serie A
Donnarumma is one of the hottest prospects in world football at the moment

The AC Milan golden boy has been backed by the legendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon to have an extraordinary career. The 18-year-old is one of the top shot-stoppers in Europe right now. If Madrid wants a long-term solution, then Donnarumma may be the answer.

Recently, the young goalkeeper has been under fire from his own fans as they accuse him of “betraying them”. Negative banners and chants left Donnarumma in tears in a recent match.

This sad incident occurred after he signed a deal making him the third highest earning goalkeeper with his brother joining the club as part of the deal. This uncertainty may well make Donnarumma pack his bags. Madrid surely have kept an eye on the proceedings. However, Real Madrid will have to pay huge bucks to lure him to the Spanish Capital.
