The La Liga giants have been forced to enter the transfer market after a hand injury to Spanish international Iker Casillas looks likely to leave him out of action for a number of months.
That has forced the club into a hasty search for a temporary replacement to guard the Real Madrid goal. While the club have all but given up hope of defending their La Liga title, currently sitting fifteen points off leaders Barcelona, they still retain hope of winning this season’s Champions League.
Madrid have also been linked with QPR’s Julio Cesar but have turned their attention to the Roma stopper after Harry Redknapp ruled out an exit for the Brazilian.
That will cause some concern for the likes of Arsenal and Fulham who were also hoping to make an approach for Stekelenburg this January.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is looking to bring in another goalie to provide competition for current number one Wojciech Szczesny. The Gunners boss believes some added competition will improve the Polish stoppers performances.
Fulham meanwhile are on the lookout for a successor to their current aging number one, Mark Schwarzer.
