Real Madrid Transfer News: David Ospina Moving To Real Madrid


Real Madrid Transfer News: Argentine goalkeeper David Ospina is ready to join Real Madrid. He might sign a free transfer with the club in the summer. Spanish news site Defensa Central claims that Real Madrid has received a huge boost in their pursuit of goalkeeper David Ospina.

The 33-year-old is prepared to see out the remainder of his contract with Serie A powerhouse Napoli before joining Real Madrid on a free transfer during the summer transfer window.

David has been a steady performer for Napoli since joining the club from Arsenal in August of this year. After first joining Napoli on a season-long loan, the Colombian goalkeeper eventually secured a permanent contract with the team a year later.

However, during his tenure with the Partenopei, the veteran shot-stopper was forced to split playing time. Never appearing more than 30 times in a single season in the Italian capital.

The 33-year-old has been in excellent form during the current season. He has kept 10 clean sheets in 19 Serie A outings. His exploits have allowed Napoli to stay in contention for the league championship.

Ospina’s time with the club, though, might come to an end in the summer, since his contract with the club expires after the season. Real Madrid has taken notice of such an occurrence and is taking action.

The frustrations of Real Madrid goalie Andriy Lunin have reached a boiling point. The club may join the transfer market during the summer transfer season.

Real Madrid Transfer News: Why Real Madrid needs David Ospina?

The Ukrainian international was originally regarded as a long-term answer between the sticks for Los Blancos. However, he has failed to dethrone the giant Thibaut Courtois in the Spanish capital.

Lunin has only had a few appearances in the Copa Del Rey in recent years. On the other hand, Courtois has progressed from strength to strength. Ajax may sign the 22-year-old to replace the departing Andre Onana, according to reports.

Real Madrid may hunt the transfer market for a replacement if Lunin were to go. David Ospina has surfaced as a potential candidate.

And the Spanish giants have received a significant boost in their pursuit of the 33-year-old. He is eager to join them during the summer transfer window.

While Ospina will have to make do with the same responsibilities as Lunin, the Colombian goalkeeper has no reservations about serving as Courtois’ backup. And the trade will almost certainly be accomplished via a Bosman move, as the veteran goalkeeper is expected to see out the remainder of his contract with Serie A team Napoli.
