Chelsea FC are aware that Thibaut Courtois will have to be sold this summer, Belgian reporter Kristof Terreur has claimed.

The Blues goalkeeper has made no secret of his desire to return to the Spanish capital to reunite with his children in Madrid.

Courtois spent three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid before he returned to Chelsea FC to replace Petr Cech as number one.

The Belgian star has won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup during his Blues career so far.

Courtois has been linked with a move to La Liga giants Real Madrid over the past few weeks as los Blancos look to replace Keylor Navas.

Belgian reporter Terreur explained why Chelsea FC need to sell Courtois in the current transfer window.

“They know they have to cash in on him now,” Terreur told the Transfer Talk podcast.

“Chelsea don’t let contracts run down. If Real make the offer Chelsea want, he is gone.”

Sarri was confirmed as Antonio Conte’s replacement at Chelsea FC last weekend to start a new chapter at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley thanks to Eden Hazard’s winner from the penalty spot.

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