Report: Courtois ready to leave Chelsea for Real Madrid

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has reportedly informed Real Madrid that he wants to join the Spanish giants next summer.

Los Blancos are expected to be in the market for a new stopper at the end of the season, despite Keylor Navas’s impressive performances this term.

Manchester United’s David de Gea was minutes away from moving to the Bernabeu last summer, but the deal broke down at the final moment.

De Gea went on to sign a new deal at Man United, although it is understood that there is still interest from the Spanish club.

Despite the fondness for De Gea, another Premier League goalkeeper could be on their way to Real Madrid, with Courtois keen on a move to Spain, according to OK Diario.

The 23-year-old returned to Chelsea in the summer of 2014 following three successful seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid and helped the Blues win the Premier League title last season.

The London club have struggled this term, however, and it is understood that failure to qualify for the 2015-16 Champions League would force Courtois to consider his future.
