Chelsea FC have a three-man wish list to replace Thibaut Courtois, according to Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

The Blues goalkeeper is facing an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge after refusing to agree to a new deal with Chelsea FC.

Courtois’ current deal is set to expire at the end of the Premier League season unless Chelsea FC can convince him to sign a new deal.

The Belgian shot stopper has been linked with a potential switch to La Liga giants Real Madrid, having been a target over the past three seasons.

Real Madrid are reportedly ready to spend a cut price £31m on the 27-year-old former Genk goalkeeper.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth provided an update on the goalkeeper situation at the west London side.

“Courtois is entering the final year of his contract,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.

“Real Madrid value him at £32m. Courtois wants to go for family reasons.

“Chelsea won’t resume talks with Real Madrid unless they’ve got a replacement. The list is Pickford, Butland and Schmeichel.”

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

The Blues were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley back in May.
