Chelsea first choice goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois has agreed a move to Spanish giants, Real Madrid. The Chelsea star has agreed terms with Real Madrid, according Daily Mail, UK.
The Belgian international has one year remaining on his current deal at Chelsea but has made his intention to move back to Spain known. The La Liga giants have a long-held interest in Courtois and have prioritized a move for him over Manchester United star, David De Gea. Chelsea are already looking at replacements for Courtois and would prefer to get their man before allowing the Belgian to go.
However, his move to the Bernabeu looks settled now with Madrid agreeing a contract with Courtois. Chelsea had already drew up a shortlist of Kasper Schmeichel, Jack Butland and Alisson Becker as potential replacements for Courtois. Alisson’s decision to move to Liverpool has left the Blues with few options. Leicester have also insisted they won’t let Schmeichel leave.
