Chelsea FC star wants to sign for Real Madrid – report
Thibaut Courtois is keen on sealing a move to Real Madrid from Chelsea FC, according to reports
Thibaut Courtois is keen on sealing a move to Real Madrid from Chelsea FC this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Belgian shot-stopper is keen on a move to the Bernabeu this summer as the speculation about his future rumbles on.
Courtois’ situation at Stamford Bridge has been a source of uncertainty recently, with the goalkeeper’s current contract at the club set to expire next summer.
The Blues are unlikely to want to let Courtois’ contract run down and risk losing the Belgium international on a free transfer next summer.
The same report says that the 26-year-old goalkeeper is on Real Madrid’s radar this summer, but he is not their first-choice goalkeeping target, with AS Roma shot-stopper Alisson their preferred option.
The article claims that Courtois will be likely to move to Real Madrid if the Spanish club end up dropping their interest in Alisson.
It is widely expected that Chelsea FC will appoint Maurizio Sarri as their new manager in the coming days as they look to resolve the uncertainty about the situation at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea FC finished in fifth place and won the FA Cup under Antonio Conte last term.
