Kasper Schmeichel isn’t good enough to replace Thibaut Courtois at Chelsea FC, Craig Burley has warned Maurizio Sarri.

The Chelsea FC number one is thought to be closing in on a move to Champions League holders Real Madrid this summer.

Courtois has 12 months left to run on his current deal and the Blues will be keen to avoid losing the Belgium star for nothing next summer.

Alisson Becker had been touted as a potential replacement for Courtois before Liverpool FC signed the Brazil international in a £67m deal from AS Roma.

Leicester’s Schmeichel has been named as another potential signing to replace Courtois in the Chelsea FC goal under Sarri.

The Foxes have already signed Wales international Danny Ward in a £11m deal from Liverpool FC last week.

Former Chelsea FC defender Burnley doesn’t believe Schmeichel is good enough for the west London side.

“No – he’s not good enough,” Burley told ESPN FC. “He is a good goalkeeper but I think he is good enough where he is. Not good enough for Chelsea. “

Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a spot in the Champions League.

The Blues have only signed Italy international Jorginho in a £57m deal from Serie A runners up Napoli this summer.
