2018 World Cup Golden Glove winner Thibaut Courtois is believed to be enthusiastic about a move to the Spanish capital, and the most recent reports indicate the deal is in the advanced stages
The Belgian had an incredible World Cup outing with his national side, as he got the Golden Glove award in the prestigious Mundial which have done no harm in attracting the European Champion interest.
The player is in the latter stages of his contract with the West London club and has had his sights set on a move to Madrid to be closer to his two kids, who live in the Spanish capital.
As indicated by ‘Marca’, Real Madrid are hoping to make a move for the Chelsea No 1 shot-stopper as quickly as time permits, and negotiations between Madrid and Chelsea have reached an exceptional advanced level.
Given his contract circumstance, the expense fee won’t be particularly high for a player of his quality, with Madrid being quoted a fee of around £36 million and are hoping to quicken the negotiations to get the deal over the line after Courtois’ World Cup exploits.
Speaking on his return to Belgium from Russia, the former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper addressed his club situation.
“In this World Cup, I have ignored all the speculation, all the rumors.
“But now in the next few days I will have a chat with my agent and see what Chelsea told him, and then we will talk.”
