Chelsea reject bid from Real Madrid for Thibaut Courtois

The Belgian is yet to sign a new contract extension

Thibaut Courtois returned to Chelsea from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2014 after he enjoyed 3 successful seasons on loan in Spain. Since then he has been the mainstay between the sticks and has established himself as one of the best Goalkeepers in the world.

The Belgian is considered as one of the most important members of the Blues and has already won 2 Premier League, 1 FA Cup and 1 League club with the club. He made 46 appearances for the club last season but missed out on Champions League qualification.

But the 25 year old has been stalling on signing a contract extension at Stamford Bridge for a past couple of months and could leave on a free transfer next year when his contract expires. He has seemingly joined a number of first-team players whose futures are also shrouded in doubt.

It is believed that he would be reluctant to sign a new deal if Antonio Conte stays this summer, whose future is still uncertain.

The Belgium International has been linked to host number of clubs including Real Madrid ahead of the summer transfer window.

Despite winning the Champions League final against Liverpool last month, La Liga giants are expected to reinforce their side this summer after an underwhelming domestic campaign. The club could sell few players to accommodate new signings.

The La Liga giants have prioritized signing a goalkeeper as Kiko Casilla likely to leave the club and Keylor Navas will turn 32 next season. They have been linked to host of goalkeepers but have made the signing of Courtois their priority.

According to latest news, the Spanish side have made an initial offer for the goalkeeper. But Chelsea have rejected a £35 million bid from them for Courtois, reports Metro.
