Real Madrid are hoping to announce the signing of Thibaut Courtois from Chelsea in the coming hours, according to Marca.
This summer-long saga could finally be set to draw to a close. The likely result, Courtois becoming a Real Madrid player and reuniting with his children in the Spanish capital.
Marca believe that official confirmation is now imminent, with Real Madrid finally striking a deal with Chelsea to sign the Belgium international.
The report claims that Real will part with €35M in order to sign Courtois, which is about right considering just one-year remains on his Chelsea contract.
If we have given the go-ahead to Courtois leaving, it likely means that we already have a replacement lined up.
Gianluigi Donnarumma, Kasper Schmeichel and Jordan Pickford have all been linked, but their respective clubs would be hesitant to sell at such a late stage of the window.
It’s a difficult situation that we find ourselves in. One thing’s for sure, we can’t go into the new season with Willy Caballero as our number one.
