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?
Courtois to Madrid rumors.. Man needs to kiss the badge next game & sign a new contract straight after.

This Courtois talk hope it's false. But if it hapoens someday. Madrid will have to put ton of cash and the replacement must be Donnaruma.

Imagine if Real Madrid manage to keep James and Isco while signing Verratti/Hazard/Dybala/Aubameyang/Courtois.

Real Madrid should just tempt Chelsea with a bid of £60m for Courtois. ????

I would happily let Courtois go to Real madrid. For 100 million pounds. Being young and the best keeper out there, pay up.

@ChelseaFC Seriously am tired of all this Courtois-Real madrid thing, please it's high time we get it done with and with a huge sum too.

Courtois being frequently linked with a move away from stamford bridge irritates me. If he wants to leave he should go.
