Real Madrid great Miguel Ángel González: I'd pay more for Oblak than Courtois

Real Madrid great Miguel Ángel González admits he doesn't rate Thibaut Courtois as the best goalkeeper in the LaLiga.

Instead, Gonzalez says Atletico Madrid No1 Jan Oblak is the outstanding keeper in the country.

He told Radio Marca: "The goalkeeper I like the most right now is Oblak, because of the way he moves in the goal. Then I would put Courtois and then (Marc-Andre) Ter Stegen who does very good things but it is not the style that most I like.

"I'd pay a little more for Oblak than for Courtois."

On news that Iker Casillas is returning to Madrid, Gonzalez added: "It is always important that a person who has lived with Real Madrid returns and contributes his experience. I am very happy that Iker is back to contribute his ideas to the foundation."
