Reports in Spain suggest that Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is refusing to sign a new contract with the club and is instead keen on moving to Real Madrid (via Marca).
One thing Real Madrid are known for it’s poaching key players from the Premier League.
Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo are some of the best examples with Manchester United’s David De Gea the subject of much interest in recent years.
Chelsea could soon be getting their own test of Los Blancos’ transfer power with reports that Thibaut Courtois is keen on a move to the side.
We reported earlier in the week that the Belgian stopper is holding out for a massive contract extension at Stamford Bridge.
His current deal expires in 2019 and if he refuses to sign a new one then the Blues could be forced into a sale as early as next summer. It’s a worrying report for Antonio Conte but it could just be a ploy from his agents in an attempt to get a better deal.
