Agent coy over Real Madrid contact for Hajduk Split keeper Karlo Letica

Marca believe Letica is a more viable target due to De Gea and Courtois mammoth values

Real Madrid seem to have found the flawless goalkeeping alternative in Karlo Letica, the goalkeeper for Croatia's U21 team.

Zinedine Zidane's side feel they can steal a march on their rivals by securing the signature of Letica, who is compared to Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak due to his size, ahead of next season.

The report goes as far as suggesting that a move could be imminent after the club made contact with the player's agent to sound out a move.

Have I spoken to Real Madrid?

The Croatian is not the only keeper on the club's radar however. Letica would initially become his understudy, so he can be added to the project of introducing young players into the squad that Real are now putting into action. In that respect, Letica would join the likes of Mateo Kovačić and Marco Asensio.

Athletic Bilbao prospect Kepa Arrizabalaga was heavily linked with a switch to Madrid but interest in the young Spaniard seems to have waned and any deal now appears unlikely with the focus firmly on Letica.

However, the debate regarding the goalkeeping position continues to be talked about at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Real Madrid are considering Letica as a possible alternative to Thibaut Courtois and David De Gea, according to Marca's Jose Felix Diaz and Sarah Salahpour (h/t Nathan Salt of MailOnline).

Despite the high price tags, both options were on the table, but since Letica's fantastic campaign at Hajduk, Madrid seem to have dropped their interest to focus ion bringing the Croatian to the Spanish capital.

Marca however also report that the giants at the club, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos, would prefer the Navas to remain the clubs number one.
