Madrid Near Thibaut Courtois Signing; Agree tn Personal Terms With The Goaltender.
Real Madrid are reportedly on the verge of signing Chelsea first-choice goalie Thibaut Courtois as they have reached an agreement with the player.
The Spanish giants are set to replace their first-choice goalie Kaylor Navas this summer as the Costa Rica international wants to move elsewhere ahead of the coming season.
The Los Blancos has been in the race for the player’s signature for a very long time and they might finally acquire his services this summer if the reports via the Sun is anything to trust.
However, the Santiago Bernabeu outfits are also believed to be eyeing a possible move for Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, should they fail to get Thibaut Courtois.
The Sun reports that Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui is impressed with the Frenchman’s display with the North London club and he has made the netminder his alternative to Thibaut Courtois should the Blues fail to sanction the Belgian’s switch to the Spanish capital.
Madrid will need to overcome a huge challenge from Tottenham Chief Daniel Levy — who is not ready to lose any player this summer — if they must complete their desire to work with the world-cup-winning goaltender.
With this report, it can easily be said that the Galacticos are 50% successful in their mission to bring Courtois to Madrid but they will need to convince the Blues by offering a mouthwatering deal for his services.
