Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri would not be drawn into comments made by the agent of Thibaut Courtois that he wants to join Real Madrid.
The Belgian international goalkeeper – who won the World Cup Golden Gloves award – is out of contract at Stamford Bridge next summer and is said to be available for €35m.
Comments from the player’s agent over the weekend stated the 26-year-old had a desire to join the European champions this year.
“I have no reaction on the agent,” Sarri told reporters on Sunday.
“I am not interested in the agent, I want to hear if Courtois tomorrow will say the same.
“I have to speak with my club. I want only players with high level of motivation. I don't have any answer to the agent.”
Madrid have held a long-standing interest in bolstering their goalkeeping department as Keylor Navas has held the number one jersey.
A report in Sky Sports say the FA Cup winners have prioritised finding a replacement and if they do not, they would risk losing the shot-stopper on a free transfer next summer.
Courtois has two children living in Madrid following his spell with Atletico Madrid between 2011 and 2014, while he has constantly been linked with a move to the European champions.
