Real Madrid reach agreement with Chelsea star ahead of Deadline Day Medical
According to rumours Chelsea goal-keeper is on the verge of officially becoming a Real Madrid player, with the Belgium international set for medical with Los Blancos on deadline day.
Before the start of the World Cup, there were rumours that Courtois will move to Real Madrid with just 1 year left in his contract at Chelsea. Since becoming the Golden Glove winner at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, these rumours have intensified.
Having missed training, Courtois has clearly stated his intentions of joining Real Madrid due to family issues. With Chelsea’s World reaching the agreement to meet the release clause of Athletic Bilbao’s goalkeeper Kepa today at €80m, the path is now well clear for Courtois to move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur has reported that the Chelsea shot-stopper has reached an agreement with Real Madrid and will sign a six-year contract in the Spanish capital after completing his medical on Thursday.
