Reports: Real Target Tells Chelsea He Wants To Leave

A Real Madrid target has reportedly told new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri he wants to leave the Stamford Bridge club in this transfer window.

Agent: My Client Wants To Leave Chelsea For Real Madrid

According to ESPN, Belgium international Thibaut Courtois has made it clear to his manager he wants to move to Spanish giants Los Blancos.

The shot-stopper, who has one year left on his current contract, has stated he would like to head back to Madrid as his children live in the city and he wants to be closer to them. 

Sarri, who is apparently open to selling players who are not committed to the club or his project, sat down with the goalkeeper after the 2-0 Community Shield defeat to Manchester City on Sunday, and was informed by the Belgian that he would like to move back to Spain.

Last week, Courtois was pushed by the Belgian media about his future, and the player refused to give any indication as to where he will be playing in 2018/19.

"My transfer? I am not going to say anything about that now, it is a delicate situation," the keeper said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror

"I cannot say much, I am not thinking about that, I am calm and becoming anxious would not help. What is important is to be ready for next season."

The 26-year-old has made 154 appearances for Chelsea so far, keeping 58 clean sheets along the way.
