Chelsea are considering Atletico Madrid’s goalkeeper, Oblak following reports that Belgian World Cup keeper and Chelsea no.1 Thibas Courtois will not be returning to the squad because he fancies Real Madrid move.
The keeper had impressive outing with Belgium at just concluded World Cup in Russia winning the golden glove and bronze medal with his country. Courtois has made his intention of joining Real Madrid known since last season. Los Blanco fancied Manchester United’s goalkeeper instead but the transfer now seem impossible as the Spanish keeper signed an extension with his club shortly after World Cup.
Chelsea will be looking to make Jan Oblak the replacement if they are unable to convince Courtoius to stay. Although, Chelsea would be less worried especially because star man, Eden Hazard who also fancies a move to Real Madrid has assured the club of him staying for at least one more season and has returned to training.
Do you see Courtois leaving Chelsea with few days left to get a replacement?
