Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth has claimed that Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois wants to return to Madrid this summer.

This is the news that we had all feared. Courtois has shown no willingness of signing a contract extension with the club, despite winning two Premier League titles during his four-year stint as a Chelsea player.

Courtois’ contract expires next summer, it’s insane we’ve allowed ourselves to get into this position. One of the best goalkeepers in the world could leave the club in 12-months time, and we wouldn’t receive a penny in return.

The best course of action may well be to cash-in on Courtois this summer while we have the chance. We may be forced to anyway, with the Belgian looking to push through a move back to Madrid before the end of the transfer window.

Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth believes that to be the case, anyway. He’s quoted by The Sport Review saying:

“In an ideal world Courtois would like to move back to Madrid. His ex girlfriend and children are there.”

Would you be prepared to sell Courtois this summer, Blues? Let us know what you think in the comments.
