Twitter reacts to rumours linking Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid

As we discussed earlier, Thibaut Courtois is the subject of rumours linking him with a move from Chelsea to Real Madrid next summer.

It’s a story reported by Marca and it’s caused quite a stir with football fans across Europe.

Courtois is one of the continent’s best known goalkeepers after years of exceptional performances for Atletico Madrid, Chelsea and Belgium.

It’s that form for Atletico that made him a long-time target for their city rivals Madrid and it seems Courtois wants the move, with Marca reporting that he’s already telling teammates and friends he’s for the off.

He’s kept 10 clean sheets for the Blues this season and if he does leave, he’ll be hard to replace.

Chelsea fans have been taking to Twitter to give their thoughts on the potential transfer with some hoping that the reports from Marca are just rumours and not substantial and others not all that fussed about the prospect of him leaving.

Can the Stamford Bridge side hold on to their star? Or should they cash in and say goodbye?
