Real Madrid, the Spanish football giant, is currently on a quest to bolster its goalkeeping options. The scouting team is diligently exploring the market for suitable candidates. The club faces decisions regarding the future of Kepa Arrizabalaga and Andriy Lunin, the current custodians of the goalposts.

The recent injury to Thibaut Courtois prompted Real Madrid to secure Kepa Arrizabalaga on loan from Chelsea. The Spaniard formed a temporary partnership with Ukrainian goalkeeper Andriy Lunin. While Courtois’s continued presence from next season is assured, uncertainties shroud the fate of Kepa and Lunin.

Real Madrid is considering negotiating with Chelsea for a permanent deal with Kepa, contingent on the agreed asking price. In contrast, Lunin might be allowed to depart should he express the desire to leave the club.


Among the goalkeeping profiles under scrutiny is Matheus from Sporting de Braga. He is a seasoned 31-year-old with a decade-long tenure at the Portuguese club. Matheus stands at an imposing 1.90m.

Exploring the market

Braga goalkeeper Matheus

His experience and stature make him a compelling option for Real Madrid’s goalkeeping department.


Another contender on Real Madrid’s radar is Giorgi Mamardashvili, a 23-year-old goalkeeper from Valencia. With physical attributes akin to Courtois, Mamardashvili presents an intriguing market option. He was valued at around 25 million euros by his club last summer.

Randall Rodríguez

In the search for emerging talent, Real Madrid is closely monitoring Randall Rodríguez, the goalkeeper for the Uruguayan U-20 team and a substitute at Peñarol. This young prospect adds a potential injection of youthful vigor to the goalkeeping ranks.

The scouting net extends to Eastern Europe and Brazil, with a keen interest in various profiles. Gabriel Slonina was a standout favorite until Chelsea secured his services. Los Blancos exploring the market for young goalkeepers underscores the club’s commitment to identifying and securing top talent from around the globe.

As Real Madrid navigates the complex landscape of goalkeeper acquisitions, the coming transfer windows will be crucial in determining the final composition of their goalkeeping lineup. The decisions surrounding Kepa, Lunin, and potential new signings will shape the club’s defensive dynamics in the seasons to come.
