  • Willian Fails To Report For Chelsea Training Amidst Real Madrid Rumours

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois reportedly tells Chelsea that he will leave on a free next year unless he is allowed to join Real Madrid this summer.

The Belgian, who had a strong World Cup in Russian Federation, has been strongly linked with a move to the Bernabeu. It depends especially on him, I think.

Chelsea want Courtois to sign a new long-term contract but the keeper says his mind is made up and he wants to move to Madrid to be with his children according to the report by UK Sun.

However, Barcelona have since signed Bordeaux winger Malcom for a fee that could rise to £37.3m which could spell the end of their interest in Willian.

"It is a big decision for Thibaut because he wants to be nearer to his family".

Courtois, who has a year remaining on his Chelsea contract, has a three-year-old daughter and one-year-old son from a previous relationship.

The failed Pickford move means Chelsea believe they have exhausted their options in terms of a replacement for Courtois.

"It is understandable people might be upset because he wants to leave the club, we accept that", Henrotay added.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri said he is "very confident" that Willian will stay with the club this summer but admitted the future of Thibaut Courtois depends largely on the goalkeeper's decision.

"I am very happy at Chelsea and I am very happy living in London".

With the English transfer window set to shut next Thursday, time is running out for Chelsea to find a replacement should they decide to sell.

Courtois was believed to be on the list of players seeking a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer, and Real Madrid seemed to be at the forefront to sign the Belgian worldwide.

"At the moment Courtois is the goalkeeper of Chelsea", said Sarri.
