Chelsea Transfers: 5 Under-The-Radar Keepers To Replace Thibaut Courtois

Chelsea Transfers: 5 Under-The-Radar Keepers To Replace Thibaut Courtois

Chelsea have not moved away from their stance on Thibaut Courtois despite his agent urging them to accept an offer from Real Madrid.

The Times report that Willian has contacted Chelsea explaining that his absence is due to an issue with his passport, following an extended period off after the World Cup, he was originally expected to return to pre-season training last Friday. It depends especially on him, I think.

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.

Some supporters have criticised the 26-year-old as they feel that his desire to move to the Bernabeu is being financially driven, but Henrotay has dismissed those claims out of hand.

Jordan Pickford would be a goalkeeper perfectly suited to Maurizio Sarri's style of play at Chelsea FC, according to Adam Bate.

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

'Throughout this it has important for everyone to be reasonable, and the buying club has come up with a reasonable offer for a player who has one year left on his contract when they know they could sign him without a fee in 12 months.

The failed Pickford move means Chelsea believe they have exhausted their options in terms of a replacement for Courtois.

"At the moment Courtois is the goalkeeper of Chelsea", he said.

"But, I hope that Courtois will be our goalkeeper. Every club wants to keep their top players and we are trying to do it".

But speaking after Chelsea's friendly defeat against Arsenal in Dublin on Wednesday, Sarri admitted he was "not happy" about the situation and would talk to Willian when he returned to Cobham.
