Reports: Real Madrid Reach Deal For Chelsea Star
Reports coming out of Spain suggest that Real Madrid have reached a deal for a Chelsea star who starred at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
According to RMC Sport, Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is set to become the first big-name signing of the Julen Lopetegui era at Los Blancos.
After weeks of negotiations, it is believed the Madrid side will pay the London club an estimated fee of €35 million (R542 million) for the keeper's signature.
Courtois is expected to fly to Spain after a holiday break with his family, and an announcement could be made within the next two weeks.
Real president Florentino Perez has wanted a top-class stopper to replace Keylor Navas for some time, and is happy said to be have landed the Belgian's signature after the club's failed attempt to sign David de Gea from Manchester United in 2015.
Courtois, who won the Golden Glove award at the 2018 World Cup, has one year left on his contract with Chelsea, but has hinted on many occasions that he would like to return to Spain one day, where his kids live.
