Chelsea line up Real Madrid ace should mega money star depart

Chelsea could make a move for Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas should Thibaut Courtois depart this summer, according to Spanish outlet Don Balon.

Though the Costa Rican has been in reasonably good form for the Madrid giants, Los Blancos are reportedly aiming to install a bigger name between the posts to replace Iker Casillas.

They had seemed to be set on signing David De Gea from Manchester United, though recent reports link them with a move for Courtois.

Despite replacing Stamford Bridge legend Petr Cech as the club’s Number 1, a move to Paris Saint-Germain has also been suggested.

Should the La Liga juggernauts make a big money move, the Blues will reportedly turn to Navas as they search for a replacement.

The former Levante man was due to be included in a swap deal, though the De Gea deal infamously fell through at the eleven hour due to paperwork issues.
