Agent urges Chelsea to let Courtois go

  • Willian finally breaks his silence over his uncertain future

Courtois previously spent three years at Atletico Madrid and is now ready to link up with their city rivals.

The Belgian worldwide has just 12 months left on his contract but the Blues are reluctant to sell. The 26-year old Courtois want the move to happen but is reluctant to do anything unnecessary to hurt the team.

The agent of Chelsea star Thibaut Courtois has urged the Blues to accept an offer from Real Madrid after revealing the Belgian has asked to leave Stamford Bridge.

The goalkeeper wants to return to Madrid to be closer to his family and experience a new challenge after four years as Chelsea's No.1.

That has led to criticism from some supporters that money is the major motivating factor - a notion rejected by Henrotay. He threw his future into more doubt when he failed to report for the pre-season training on time.

Willian initially joined Chelsea in 2013 from Anzhi Makhachkala for £35m, could the offer from Real Madrid have turned his head?




Sources told ESPN Brasil that the delay was caused by an expired passport, and Chelsea as a club have no immediate concerns about his attitude or commitment in a summer in which Barcelona and Manchester United have both expressed an interest in signing him.

Thibaut Courtois move can be seen by some of the supporters as depressing and hurting.

"It is understandable people might be upset because he wants to leave the club, we accept that".

'But this is a human decision based on someone wanting to be close to his children - and that is a reasonable thing too'.

Chelsea are expected to play 4-3-3 under new boss Maurizio Sarri and so Eden Hazard and Charly Musonda would be the only remaining wingers, with the latter yet to break into the first team.

However Courtois' contract situation could change the club's stance as they don't want to lose the goalkeeper for nothing next June.
