Real Madrid Working On Deal For Brazilian Star: Will He Improve Zidane’s Team?

According to reports, Real Madrid are working on a deal to sign AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker. The 25-year-old custodian has been in good form this season and has played 22 matches for the Rome outfit. He arrived from Brazilian club Internacional in the summer of 2016 and has gone on to become one of the important players at the club owing to some impressive performances.

It is being reported that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez feels that Alisson is the perfect man to guard the real goal. The player’s age and quality have put him under the radar of the bosses at Santiago Bernabeu and a deal is being already worked on, according to reports, to bring the player to Madrid.

Real are expected to undergo a massive change in summer with players like Eden Hazard and Harry Kane tipped to join the Galacticos. Real already have a keeper in Keylor Navas but it feels like that despite some good performances the custodian’s days in the Madrid goal could be numbered.

The Costa Rican custodian has been an integral part of Zinedine Zidane’s two-time Champions League winning team. However, as is always the case with Real there is something more needed than just good performances to become a hero at Santiago Bernabeu.

The first and foremost problem Real have with Navas is the fact that he is turning 31 this year and does not have a long career ahead of him. This has prompted the Spanish capital outfit to look for other options despite Navas being in terrific form in goal.

The second situation at the Bernabeu is that Real have actively chased Manchester United’s David De Gea and have been linked with Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois and now a third name has come up. The reason for this is because these keepers are young and have time on their side on top of the fact that they are the best in the world in what they do.

The third and final reason for Real to not follow up with Navas is because the Costa Rican lacks the superstar factor needed to thrive in Real Madrid. The players in Real are not just professionals but celebrities followed by the world. The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Marcelo, Toni Kroos, Isco and company have set a certain “Galactico” standard in terms of their celebrity like lifestyle, something Navas has been unable to do.

Alisson would be a genuinely good signing for Real for days to come but whether Roma, who have lost half their side in the last two windows, will agree to sell again remains to be seen.
