Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois has been the subject of transfer speculation for a while now and all roads seemingly lead to Real Madrid.
The Spanish side have been courting the 2018 World Cup Golden Glove winner and have made a lucrative offer as they look to facilitate a switch from Stamford Bridge to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid didn’t want to pay £62m for Alisson (25) and now they would be suddenly plotting a move for the £60m rated Hugo Lloris (31). ? So why did they agree terms with Thibaut Courtois and are they still in touch with Chelsea? #cfc #thfc

Recent reports claim the Champions League holders have already agreed personal terms with the towering star but are yet to agree a deal with the Blues.
“I have a contract with Arsenal,” he said, as quoted by ?Goal. “I am concentrating on this season, on the competition between the goalkeepers because we have plenty of options.
“I’m doing my best to show to the manager that I can be in the starting lineup when the season starts. That’s my aim and as for the speculation, I don’t really follow it. I’ve had no contact with Chelsea.”
Schmeichel, meanwhile, rose to stardom during Leicester’s title-winning campaign and has retained his status as one of the best shot-stoppers in the Premier League.
Whether or not he moves to Chelsea remains to be seen, but the Blues would do well to secure the services of the talented Dane if they do lose Courtois this summer.
