Real Madrid may make a move for Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois if they fail to capture David de Gea this summer, according to Guillem Balague. Oakland Athletics Trevor Plouffe Jersey . Manchester United goalkeeper De Gea was on the verge of a move to the Bernabeu last summer, before the deal bizarrely broke down on Deadline Day.Courtois Chelsea failed to qualify for Europe for next season, and Balague believes the Belgian would be a fitting plan B if De Gea stays put once again. Spanish football expert Balague told Sky Sports News HQ: There is a private agreement by which Real Madrid could actually get David de Gea if they pay 50m euros. There is a time limit to that.Im pretty sure Mourinho will want De Gea to stay but it will be a decision that will involve both De Gea and Real Madrid. David de Gea was close to a move to Real last summer At the beginning of the season everyone expected De Gea to be the next Galactico but now the situation has changed, not only because Jose Mourinho has arrived at Manchester United, but also Keylor Navas has done really well.So what Real have done in recent weeks in case they dont get De Gea, is try to convince Thibaut Courtois to go to Real Madrid. Jose Mourinho is set to become Manchester Uniteds new manager Transfer speculation in and out of Manchester United is rife with the impending arrival of Jose Mourinho after Louis van Gaals sacking on Monday.But Balague says the situation with former United forward Cristiano Ronaldo and PSG has not changed, and believes the Portuguese star and his former manager will never work together again. Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo are unlikely to work together again, says Balague Balague said: Somehow I dont think Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo will ever cross paths again. The relationship broke down when they were at Real Madrid and Im not sure that will be rekindled.Theres clearly an offer from PSG to get Ronaldo. Its a high offer but maybe not high enough for Real Madrid.Theres a private agreement between Jorge Mendes and PSG for Ronaldo to go to France but if Real dont feel there is anyone of that calibre in the market, not only will they keep him but they may actually renew his contract for a couple more years.

The Kings loss was the most recent game for the Raptors.DENVER - Josh Kroenkes slip of the tongue even made Arron Afflalo smirk. The Denver Nuggets president explained Monday how he has closely "Afflalowed" the shooting guards two seasons in Orlando, before reacquiring him in a draft-day deal last week. "Afflalowed? I have followed," Kroenke quickly modified to laughter, "Arrons career since he left here." Theres no mistaking this: Afflalo has developed more of an all-around game since the Nuggets dealt him to the Magic on Aug. 10, 2012, as part of the blockbuster four-team, 12-player deal that also involved Dwight Howard. Back then, Afflalo was viewed as a defensive specialist with a solid jumper. Now, hes got more of a shooters mentality. So much so that Kroenke introduced him as a "new Arron Afflalo." "Arron took a lot of steps in his own growth over the time he was here and has since taken more steps," Kroenke said. "Im proud to see him doing the things hes been doing down in Orlando." The 28-year-old Afflalo is coming off a season with Orlando in which he averaged career highs in points (18.2), rebounds (3.6) and assists (3.4). He also made 128 3-pointers. This season, he will be reunited in the backcourt with Ty Lawson, who was one of the first to congratulate him after the trade that sent promising young point guard Evan Fournier to the Magic, along with a pick. "I want to continue to improve as a player," Afflalo said. "Im going to do my job, work hard this summeer to put myself in the best position. Oakland Athletics Jersey. " In some ways, Afflalo feels like he never really left the Nuggets as he always kept close tabs on his former team. And yet plenty has changed in his two-year absence. Namely, George Karl being replaced as coach by Brian Shaw. Afflalo is ready to take on whatever role Shaw has for him, whether its as a scorer or simply being Afflalo the leader. "My job is to make sure Im capable of getting that job done," Afflalo said. "I have no problem doing whatever coach asks of me." Thats the way he was with Karl, too. Afflalo couldve been a different type of player — more of a scorer, perhaps — in his first go-round with the Nuggets. But thats not what they needed, especially in the years when they had Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony on the floor. "There are probably a lot of things I probably could do back then," said Afflalo, who will wear No. 10 for Denver this season. "But its not my job to come in here and prove I could score points with the lineup I was starting with three years ago. "These days, Im a lot more confident all over the court, whether its posting up, shooting 3s, being available in the fourth quarter, being someone you can rely on in the fourth quarter." As for his defensive tenacity, that will always be a source of pride with him. "Thats part of being a complete player," he said. "I expect to be at a high level on both ends of the court." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
