Fulham target Maarten Stekelenburg could make a shock switch to Real Madrid in the transfer window.
Madrid have been rocked by news of Iker Casillas' hand injury that is likely to rule him out of both legs against Manchester United in the Champions League.
The nine-time European Cup winners are in turmoil at present, with rumours of in-fighting and speculation this is Jose Mourinho's final season.
President Florentino Perez presented a united front on Thursday when he called a press conference to insist everything is OK at the Bernabeu but against a backdrop of rumours - not to mention falling 15 points off Barcelona in La Liga - is Casillas' injury.
The club do not trust Antonio Adan and are exploring the possibility of signing a goalkeeper this month to help compensate for Casillas' injury.
QPR goalkeeper Julio Cesar has already been linked but Harry Redknapp insists the Brazilian will stay in England.
And Roma goalkeeper Stekelenburg - who is on Fulham's radar as a replacement for Mark Schwarzer when he retires - is being considered by the Madrid hierarchy.
