There could be a reason why Thibaut Courtois is still to extend his contract at Chelsea, despite the club’s clear desire to keep him in the squad.

That is, at least according to what Marca reports, the goalkeeper’s wish to go back to Madrid, where this time, he would play for Real instead of Atletico.

The outlet claims Courtois has no intention of signing a new deal at Chelsea, and now waits for the Spanish club to start making the moves to take him.

The goalkeeper is said to be very grateful for his years at Stamford Bridge, but thinks that his time in the Premier League is over.

However, he knows that Roman Abramovich won’t make it easy for him to go, and that’s why there isn’t much to do know, except waiting for the clubs to solve the situation.

Real Madrid’s chase for a goalkeeper isn’t something new, and now that Keylor Navas has turned 30, they would apparently want a younger star.

David De Gea and Jan Oblak would both be targets, but seem to be too commited to their clubs to be signed now. That’s why Courtois turns out to be the obvious choice.
