Barcelona fans would rather see Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois replace Victor Valdes at the Camp Nou than Manchester United's David de Gea.

Valdes will leave the Catalan giants at the end of the season, and 16295 Barca fans took the chance to vote in a poll conducted by Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo to find out which goalkeeper they preferred.

A massive 50% voted for Courtois, who has yet to play a game for Chelsea despite signing for the Blues in 2011.

He has, however, established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in Spain during his three loan spells with Atletico Madrid - and cemented his status as Belgium's first-choice 'keeper.

De Gea doesn't even make the top two. In second place was Borussia Mönchengladbach's Marc-André ter Stegen, who polled 24% of the votes.

The Manchester United goalkeeper picked up 12% of the votes, ahead of Liverpool's Pepe Reina and Real Sociedad's Claudio Bravo, who picked up six and 3% of the votes, respectively.
