Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is reportedly hoping he could force a move to Santiago Bernabeu in the summer. The Belgian has failed to renew his contract despite huge pressure from the Blues hierarchy, who want to keep him for more seasons.
According to Onda Cero in Spain via Football Espana, the shot-stopper is more than ready to end his spell at Stamford Bridge by the close of the season so as to move to Real Madrid where he would feature in next season’s Champions League competition.
Zinedine Zidane has been Courtois’ longtime admirer but he’s yet to make any official approach towards acquiring his services as he still hopes to lure David De Gea to the Spanish Capital despite United’s reluctant to let go of the Spaniard.
Having seen his first-choice goalkeeper Kaylor Navas made some errors this season, coupled with an increased determination from United to hold on to their goalkeeper, the Los Blancos could be forced to make an eye-catching offer for Courtois during the summer transfer window.
Meanwhile, PSG are also looking at the prospect of reinforcing their goalkeeping department by signing the Belgian this summer but that could be a tough mission to accomplish as The Telegraph suggest that Chelsea are set to offer him a new deal which will make him the highest paid goalie in the club’s history.
