Blues superstar keeper Thibaut Courtois has finally stated that he wants to the leave Stamford Bridge next summer for free.
The rumors of Madrid signing a top goalkeeper just never seem to go away, but Courtois has decided that his time at Chelsea is finally coming to an end next term. Chelsea has had a poor campaign this season and the FA Cup remains the only chance of silverware with the West London outfit struggling for a spot in the top 4 on the Premier League table.
And it will be difficult for Chelsea to keep hold of most of their star players by seeing which direction the club is heading toward. La Liga giants Real Madrid will be extremely glad to hear that Courtois is keen on leaving the club and will plan an audacious swap for the 25-year-old who has already spent three seasons in Spain with Atletico Madrid.
Courtois established himself as one of the best keepers in the world at Chelsea winning two Premier League titles and a League Cup so far. And his incredible performances have drawn attraction from the Los Blancos.
Courtois’ Chelsea contract expires in the summer of the next year 2019, but the Belgian has reportedly told his teammates and the club that he is not ready to sign a new contract extension at Chelsea. This means that Courtois will be allowed to leave Chelsea for free if he is not sold by the club in the next two transfer windows.
According to news outlet Calciomercato, the shot-stopper wants to reunite with his family at the Spanish capital desperate to leave Chelsea over the next 12 months or so. Spanish journalist José Ramón de la Morena stated, “Courtois has told Chelsea that he is willing to continue for one more year and join Real Madrid on a free transfer. Chelsea, knowing that, will not have any choice but to sanction his transfer because he has told them that he will not renew in any way. He’s crazy about coming to Madrid, as he has his daughter there,”
This news comes as a heavy blow to Chelsea fans who were looking at Courtois to stay at Stamford Bridge for a long time. But Real Madrid will be on red alert and be licking their lips trying to lure Courtois to the Santiago Bernabeu.
