Reports in Spain are suggesting that Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois would be interested in a move to Real Madrid in the future, with some outlets even suggesting that a transfer agreement may be in place for Los Blancos to sign the big Belgian international.
Just today Real Madrid have continued to be linked with a move for Courtois’ teammate for both club and country Eden Hazard and who knows, a double deal for both players could be in the offing. Los Blancos are looking for a goalkeeper that could replace Keylor Navas at the end of the current season.
The reports today suggest that Real president Florentino Perez has given up the chase for Manchester United stopper David De Gea and has instead turned his attention to Courtois. Diario Gol claim that the move could go through in the summer transfer window.

Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is expected to arrive at the Santiago Bernabeu this month, in a move that will completely overhaul the keeper situation at Real. Current back up Kiko Casilla is expected to move on in this January transfer window, with a few clubs in Spain and England reportedly interested in the player.
Thibaut Courtois has been in fantastic form so far this season and would be an excellent signing. He has claimed 11 clean sheets in the Premier League so far this term and will likely get quite a few more before the end of the season.
Even though the player used to play for Real’s city rivals Atletico Madrid, it is not expected that this will get in the way of any move. He would certainly not be the first ex Atletico player to arrive at the Bernabeu and should he sign for the club in the summer, then the fans will definitely get behind him.
