Chelsea still refusing to accept transfer offer, but pressure is on

Chelsea are reportedly refusing to buckle in terms of Thibaut Courtois and a potential transfer to Real Madrid this summer.

That’s according to Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur, who suggests the pressure is on the Blues to release their goalkeeper in a move to the Bernabeu.

Courtois has been strongly linked with Real for a number of months now, and Terreur notes that the pressure is being mounted as the player’s agent gave an interview in the Sun pushing for CFC to let his client fulfil his wish of moving to Madrid.

Los Blancos could certainly do with a big-name ‘keeper like Courtois as an upgrade on Keylor Navas between the sticks, even if the Costa Rican has been a reliable enough performer in that position in recent years.

It’s hard to argue Courtois would not be a fairly big upgrade, and Madrid are known for so often bringing in the best players in the world for each position.

Still, Chelsea are not generally a selling club and it seems they’re no closer to accepting this exit.
