Real Madrid To Offload Ex-Chelsea Goalkeeper
Chelsea fans would be having a laugh at the moment in the wake of the news that Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid are looking to offload one of their former players.
Thibaut Courtois was a Chelsea goalkeeper until last summer when he forced through a move to Real Madrid with a year left on his then Chelsea contract.
Real Madrid spent £40m to sign Courtois last summer while Croatian midfielder Mateo Kovacic joined Chelsea on loan as part of the transfer.
The Daily Mirror revealed that the Los Merengues could now be looking to sell him this summer just one year after his signing.
Thibaut Courtois was the first choice goalkeeper at Real Madrid until the reappointment of Zinedine Zidane as the club’s manager.
The 26-year-old has been dropped as the number one shot-stopper at the club with Zidane opting for three tried and trusted hands of Keylor Navas.
Costa Rican international star Navas was a key member of the Real Madrid team that won three straight Champions League titles under the guidance of French football legend Zinedine Zidane between 2016 and 2018.
Zidane rested Keylor Navas for the weekend’s game against Huesca but didn’t turn to Courtois.
Instead, Zinedine Zidane started his son Luca in goal as they secured a 3-2 win over their opponents.
