Courtois ‘pushing for’ Madrid move

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is ready to quit the club in order to force through a move to Real Madrid next year, according to reports in Spain.

The 25-year-old’s deal at Stamford Bridge expires in June 2019 and his two kids are being raised in the Spanish capital, where he spent three years with Atletico Madrid between 2011 and 2014.

A report in Diario AS now outlines how the player’s representatives and the English champions have had not breakthrough in new contract talks, and the player is attracted by Los Blancos.

It underlines how the Belgian shot-stopper would prefer his future to be at the Bernabeu rather than Stamford Bridge, while earlier this month he stated a return to Spain would be ‘attractive’ for him.
