Key Chelsea star ready to hold exit talks when Conte arrives

Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois is hoping to leave the club in the summer and will hold talks with new boss Antonio Conte when he arrives, according to reports from the Sun.

Courtois has been heavily linked with a move away from the Blues in recent weeks, with the club’s struggles having left them unable to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

And the goalkeeper isn’t short of suitors, as Real Madrid have turned to the former Atletico Madrid shot-stopper following their failed attempts to sign Manchester United ace David de Gea.

However, the Stamford Bridge hierarchy have put a massive £65million price tag on the 24-year-old, which could fend off any potential suitors.

This means that Conte, who will be the new Chelsea boss after managing Italy through EURO 2016, will have a big decision on his hands upon arrival in regards to Courtois’ situation.

The Blues play Liverpool on Wednesday night, but the game won’t have much of an impact on their season, as they cannot finish any higher than ninth this term.
