French league leaders Paris Saint Germain have joined Spanish champions Real Madrid in registering an interest for Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, according to new reports.
The future of the 25-year old has been up in the air recently, after failing to sign a new deal with the Premier League champions despite an offer being on the table for a while now.
He has even in the past stated his desire to relocate to Spain in order to be close to his kids which have seen Real emerge has favourites to sign the Belgian international.
French big spenders PSG, are now set to rival the Spanish club – who were dealt a transfer blow when primary target Kepa Arrizabalaga signed a new deal with his club Athletic Bilbao.
The 6ft 6in tall Belgian will not come cheap, however, which could be a problem for the French side who must now balance their books in respect of the UEFA Financial Fairplay regulations.
Real Madrid are also interested in Man United No. 1 David De Gea but might struggle to convince the Old Trafford club to sell, as the club hold the Spaniard in high regard and are reportedly set to pay him as much as the League’s top most earners.
Chelsea also will be hoping to keep their own shot stopper and will be looking to offer him a massive contract extension.
Courtois has made 23 league appearances for Chelsea this season, keeping 12 clean sheets so far, only behind David De Gea (14) in that particular statistic.
