Thibaut Courtois’ agent has revealed that his client would have stayed at Chelsea if his children didn’t live in Madrid.

We’re not buying this one.

Geographical issues relating to his family were cited as the primary motivator behind Courtois’ desire to leave Chelsea some time before his eventual departure.

His children do live in Madrid and it’s understandable that he would want to be close to them. Courtois’ agent, Christophe Henrotay, has attempted to justify his departure by reiterating this, as the Independent report:

“There has been a misunderstanding that he wanted to get a move for the wrong reasons, but he was pushing to go out of Chelsea because of his child.”

“If the family were in London it would have been totally different. He would have stayed, there is no reason to leave a club like Chelsea, he could have won trophies.”

“Unfortunately his kids are living with the mother in Madrid.”

The issue is, upon signing for Real Madrid, Courtois revealed how the move was a life-long dream of his, hence why he kissed the badge during his presentation at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Which one is it? Has he left Chelsea to follow his dreams of becoming a Galactico, or to live close to his children? Someone’s been lying here. Maybe the long nose isn’t the only thing Courtois and Pinocchio have in common.

From the very start of his Chelsea career he was complaining he wanted to go to Real, his kids living in Spain was just a smoke screen.
I’m glad he’s fucking gone, hate his guts.
