Real Madrid Transfer RUMOURS: Chelsea Star
Thibaut Courtois wants Madrid move
Chelsea and Belgium’s first-choice goalkeeper is said to be keen on a move back to Madrid, this time with Real, to join his family in the city
THIBAUT COURTOIS is already planning his summer move to Real Madrid.
Los Blancos want the Belgian stopper to become their No1 after realising a move for Manchester United’s David De Gea would be too difficult to complete.
Courtois’ partner and daughter still live in Madrid… And the keeper could soon be joining them permanently
Courtois spent three years in Madrid on loan at Atletico
Thibaut Courtois is currently Real Madrid’s top target and is prepared to leave London for the Spanish capital in the late spring, as per reports from Cadena Cope.
La Liga mammoths Real have allegedly changed their consideration from Manchester United’s David De Gea to the Chelsea shot-plug and want to sign him on a long haul understanding toward the finish of the season.
Courtois, who already burned through three seasons on advance at city rivals Atletico Madrid, is said to be quick to join his better half and little girl who both still live in the Spanish capital.
Genuine manager Zinedine Zidane stays content with Keylor Navas, be that as it may, and is probably not going to push Los Blancos boss into a choice in regards to Courtois.
It has also been reported that he has enquired about enrolling his daughter in a school there next year, suggesting he sees his long-term future away from Stamford Bridge.
Madrid have been long-term admirers of De Gea and almost completed a deadline day swoop in August 2015 for the ace before paperwork problems prevented the deal from being completed.
Chelsea extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to seven points with a 3-0 victory over Leicester on Saturday.
The Blues next face Hull on Sunday before a crucial clash with second-placed Liverpool on January 31.
And Belgium international Courtois believes Chelsea need to travel to Anfield with as big a lead as possible at the top of the table.
