DONE DEAL? Chelsea accept Real Madrid offer for Courtois
Real Madrid have a deal in place for Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, it has been revealed.
El Chiringuito de Jugones says Real and Chelsea have struck terms over a €35m fee for the Belgium international.
Courtois is now inside the final year of his current Blues deal and favours a move to Madrid, where his children now live.
The transfer will be announced after the World Cup; Courtois will play against England on Saturday in St. Petersburg for the third-place playoff.
He said last week: "The point is: my children live in Madrid. I would like to have them close by. That does not necessarily mean that I will go back to Spain, but for me they are very important. I'm going to do something to see them more."
