Real Madrid are considering making a move for Thibaut Courtois, according to reports in Spain.
This is the second Chelsea player Madrid are being linked with in the last two weeks. First it was Eden Hazard and now Courtois.
According to Diario Gol via the Daily Star, Courtois is desperate to leave Chelsea for Madrid.
The report claims the Belgium goalkeeper isn’t sure of Chelsea’s pedigree to challenge for the Champions League title.
The report claims Madrid president Fiorentino Perez has stepped up efforts to sell Keylos Navas in recent weeks as he prepares for Courtois’ arrival.
The Spanish club are prepared to offer Chelsea €60m for Courtois who has established himself as one of the Premier League’s best goalkeepers.
Diario Gol claim Courtois is happy at London but wouldn’t mind returning to Madrid where he spent two years with Atletico Madrid.
Whether Real Madrid are interested in Courtois or not, the fact that it is emanating from this particular media outlet in Spain gives us hope as Chelsea fans.
Diario Gol carried a lot of rumors in the the summer transfer window but majority of them failed to materialize. They were the ones who started the Hazard to Madrid rumors in the summer and we all know how that ended up.
On Madrid’s interest, I think the Spanish club may actually hold a concrete interest in the Belgian but that would depend on Chelsea’s willingness to let the towering goalie leave.
