Courtois 'tells Chelsea he wants Madrid'

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has told manager Maurizio Sarri he wishes to leave the club for Real Madrid this summer, say ESPN FC.

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.

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 says 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.
