Antonio Conte willing to cash in on wantaway Chelsea first-teamer

Thibaut Courtois could be set to leave Chelsea this summer after Antonio Conte has agreed to the goalkeeper’s departure.

According to the Mirror, the Italian coach—who will replace interim boss Guss Hiddink after the European Championships—is understood to be prepared to cash in on the Belgium international if the Blues receive an appropriate offer for his services.

The tabloid note that Courtois himself is open to a move away from Stamford Bridge, and has already informed the manager that he’s considering a future away from the club.

According to the Mirror, Chelsea’s failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League is a key reason behind his desire to seek pastures new, although while there will surely be no shortage of admirers for the former Atletico Madrid man, it remains to be seen which clubs could offer a fee deemed acceptable by the Pensioners.

The Belgian shone last term, making 32 league appearances as he edged Petr Cech out of Stamford Bridge. This season, however, suspensions due to two red cards, and a loss of form, has seen Asmir Begovic given the chance to impress.
