Real Madrid reportedly planning to change roster by adding two goalkeepers

According to reports from Spanish TV show El Chiringuito de Jugones, Real Madrid are working hard to add Manchester United's David de Gea and River Plate's young sensation Augusto Batalla to the roster this summer. Both players have been under Real's radar for a while, with Batalla almost completing a loan move to Real Madrid Castilla last winter.

De Gea is still reluctant to sign his extension with Manchester United, and reports from England say that he is willing to add an affordable release clause that would make things easier for Real Madrid to sign him.

In order for this to happen, Iker Casillas and Keylor Navas would need to be on their way out of the club. Real Madrid's captain has been rumored to be thinking about his departure for the last couple of years and Navas expected to be involved with the team more often.

However, this could all change depending on Real Madrid's success late in the season.
