Chelsea star desperate to join Real Madrid and has told team-mates he wants the move


Thibaut Courtois is ‘crazy’ about the prospect of joining Real Madrid and believes the Champions League holders will submit a bid to Chelsea this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish radio station Cadena COPE claims that the Belgian would be happy to make the move to Zinedine Zidane’s side and has made his desire of returning to Madrid clear to his Chelsea team-mates.

It’s also claimed that Courtois has already arranged a place at a school in Madrid for his daughter for the next academic year, although she and his wife already live in Spain.

Face of Football’s take

Despite pulling off impressive performances week after week, it never felt as if Courtois has settled at Chelsea and has always wanted a return to La Liga.

While Atletico would be Courtois’ first choice but with Jan Oblak’s presence in goal, Real Madrid have an easier path towards signing the Belgian international.

This news will also bring a sigh of relief for the Manchester United fans who can now be rest assured of keeping hold of David De Gea for at least next summer.
