The Blues have had a deal in place for the Brazilian-born Spain international for some time, and many believed that the move would be completed upon the defending world champions elimination from the tournament almost two weeks ago.
However, reports on Spain’s AS.com claim that the Blues and Atletico Madrid are still working on completing the deal as the La Liga outfit are still keen on bringing goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to the Vicente Calderon after three years on loan in the capital.
The two clubs are now thought to be close to agreeing a deal, though, and the £32m switch could be completed by Friday, thus bringing an end to one of the summer’s longest running transfer sagas.
