The Belgian is the second Chelsea player Real Madrid are being connected within the last two weeks. First, it was forward Eden Hazard and now Thibaut Courtois.
As per Diario Gol via the Daily Star, the Chelsea safe hand is desperate to leave Stamford Bridge for Madrid.
The report also claim the goalkeeper is not sure of Chelsea’s pedigree to challenge for the UEFA Champions League title.
Real Madrid president Fiorentino Perez has reportedly stepped up efforts to cash in on Keylos Navas recently as he prepares for Thibaut Courtois’ arrival.
The Spanish La Liga club are set to offer the Blues €60million for Thibaut Courtois who has established himself as one of the English Premier League’s best goalkeepers.
Diario Gol reports Courtois is happy in the City of London but would not mind returning to Madrid where he spent two seasons with Atletico Madrid.
Whether Real are interested in the safe hand or not, the fact that the rumour is emanating from this particular media outfit in Spain gives Chelsea fans hope.
Spanish outlet Diario Gol carried a lot of rumors in the summer transfer window, but most of them failed to happen. They were the same media outlet who started the Eden Hazard to Real Madrid rumors in the summer, and we all know how that speculation ended up.
