According to reports, Chelsea will not bother with Real Madrid interest and let Thibaut Courtois leave for free
Sounds a bit far fetched, but this is the ridiculous world of football and I’m paid to report this nonsense.
Let’s do this, so mainstream “journalists” Chelsea are happy to let goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois leave Stamford Bridge for free instead of selling him this summer.
Believe it?, me neither.
The Belgium international’s contract situation with Chelsea has now apparently put his future at the club in doubt with his deal expiring at the end of next season.
And according to reports, the Premier League champions are willing to let him run down his deal rather than cash in early.
Real Madrid are reported to be interested in the 25-year-old and have him on their three-man shortlist as a potential long-term successor to Keylor Navas at the Bernabeu.
