Some Manchester United fans are pretty pleased with the news that both Chelsea and Real Madrid have confirmed the Thibaut Courtois transfer this evening.
Real finally signing a big name in goal follows plenty of speculation down the years involving Manchester United shot-stopper David de Gea, who notably nearly made the same move only for the deal to fall through.
The Guardian reported at the time that Real were late to get the paperwork through, leading supporters now to hail the mythical faulty fax machine.
Assuming Courtois is a success in the Spanish capital, one imagines Los Blancos won’t be signing another ‘keeper any time soon, which should be good news for United in terms of keeping De Gea for the long term.
