Real Madrid's transfer targets to upgrade the goalkeeper spot doesn't end in David De Gea and Petr Cech. It's true that both of them are the ones most rumored to be under Real Madrid's radar, but now reports coming from Spain indicate that Los Blancos are taking a look at Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno. Bundesliga expert Miguel Gutiérrez tweeted some interesting quotes by one of Bayer's directors.

"It makes us proud to have our players linked to big clubs." - M. Schade.

It would make sense for Real Madrid to show interest in Leno if De Gea isn't available. He's still 23 years old and has a bright future ahead of him. On the other hand, Petr Cech is on his decline, so replacing Casillas with the Czech keeper would not be very reasonable.
