Roma goalkeeper Alisson has been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool this summer, but now it seems that another Premier League club are interested.
The report claims that the Blues’ current shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois is now wanted by Real Madrid, who have cooled their interest in Alisson.
Courtois has often been linked with a move to the Bernabeu, and judging by these latest reports, he could be on his way out of the Stamford Bridge exit gates.
The Belgian international has been Chelsea’s number one since returning from his Atletico Madrid loan in 2014.
Last season, the 26-year-old came under criticism from some fans, many of whom would be prepared to bid farewell to Courtois before the end of the summer.
Some believe that Alisson is the right fit for the Premier League outfit, particularly if Maurizio Sarri replaces Antonio Conte as manager, while others are not so convinced.
I think the idea of Alisson to Chelsea and Courtois to Madrid makes a lot of sense. I'm a big fan of Courtois but Allison is perfect for Sarri's system and Courtois gets to be with his family in Madrid. Seems like a win-win for all parties. #CFC

Knowing our board of late this will never happen. Yes Tibo may be allowed to leave but we will end up with Buttland.

Alisson is overrated.

#Alison Becker's ball distribution and shot-stopping skills is better than Thibaut #Courtois. The only area Courtois is better than Alisson is that he's better in commanding his area in ariel balls. In short Alisson is better and will suite Sarriball better than Courtois.#CFC
