Chelsea FC would be interested in Liverpool FC target Alisson Becker if Thibaut Courtois moves to Real Madrid, Dharmesh Sheth has claimed.

The Belgium international’s future has been a source of relentless debate in the recent weeks to fuel talk of a return to Madrid.

The Chelsea FC number one has his ex-girlfriend and two children in the Spanish capital, providing a dilemma for Courtois in his personal and professional life.

Courtois won the Copa del Rey and La Liga during his three-year stint at Atletico Madrid on loan from the west London side.

Real Madrid are rumoured to be interested in Courtois, but los Blancos are also chasing Liverpool FC target Alisson.

The Brazilian goalkeeper is being tipped to leave AS Roma this summer if a potential suitor meets the Italian club’s valuation.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth claimed that Chelsea FC could launch a bid to sign Alisson this summer if Courtois decides to leave.

“Real Madrid have always retained an interest in Courtois,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.

“Chelsea would be interested in Alisson if Courtois moves to Real Madrid.”

The Blues were 1-0 winners against bitter rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley last season.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a top-four spot.
