Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has met with Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri and said he wants to leave the club.
Courtois who won the Adidas golden glove at the Russia 2018 World Cup has been a subject of transfer speculations to Real Madrid as he hopes to reunite with his family who is in Spain but Chelsea had said they do not want to sell him until they found a replacement.
The Belgian safest pair of hands still has twelve months left on his contract with the Blues and do not want to see it out after he confirmed during the World Cup that he will want to leave the club to Madrid.
After Chelsea lost to Manchester City in the Community Shield game on Sunday, Sarri said he would want to hear from Courtois first if he wants to leave the club and the Belgian did not mince words about his intentions when he met the Italian gaffer after training with the Blues on Monday.
His agent had earlier last week pleaded with Chelsea to allow Courtois to join Real Madrid as the Los Blancos are ready to splash in the correct transfer price for him.
Should Courtois finally leave Chelsea, the club will be left with Willy Caballero and 38-year-old Rob Green who joined the club this summer.
