Thibaut Courtois

There are three teams interested in signing Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, according to HLN.

As per the Belgian outlet, the three interested parties are Real Madrid, Juventus and PSG.

Los Blancos may well be looking for a long-term successor to Keylor Navas, whereas Juve legend Gianluigi Buffon will be retiring at the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

For PSG, the goalkeeper position has been an evident weakness in their back-line in recent seasons, there are few better options on the market than Courtois to plug that hole.

The situation.

According to HLN, Courtois is demanding €230K-a-week (£205K-a-week) to commit his future to the Premier League champions.

The report claims that if his wage demands are not met by the Blues, he will explore the possibility of joining any of the aforementioned European heavyweights.

Courtois is one of the best goalkeepers on the planet, we cannot afford to lose him. £205K-a-week is the going rate for a player of his quality in modern football – we need to pay it, and fast.
