Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois reportedly reiterates to Chelsea that he would like to join Real Madrid during the summer transfer window.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has reportedly reiterated that he would like to leave Chelsea for Real Madrid this summer.

Courtois has less than a year remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea are allegedly unprepared to cash in on the Belgium international until they have found a replacement.

However, new Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri said on Sunday that he would wait to speak to Courtois before commenting on his future, but it appears that a conversation has taken place between the pair.

According to ESPN, Courtois has told his boss that he would like to complete a switch to Bernabeu in order to be closer to his family, who live in the city.

Real are said to be prepared to pay £32m for Courtois, and the 26-year-old's agent has claimed that an offer has been made 'for Chelsea to accept'.

Should Courtois leave and Chelsea not secure a replacement, Willy Caballero would become number one with veteran Robert Green and unproven Marcin Bulka providing backup.
