Adjust Comment Print

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 West Londoners are prepared for the goalkeeper to run down the final year of his contract.

Courtois' family still reside in the Spanish capital from his time playing for Atletico Madrid.

He boasts a similar status in global football with Belgium.

Henrotay is adamant Madrid's bid represents fair compensation for the FIFA World Cup's Golden Glove victor.

The 26-year-old is reportedly despairing over the situation but is not prepared to go on strike to force the move through.

Chelsea FC will be aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title next season as they look to try and build a squad capable of at least breaking back into the top four.

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.

However, Henrotay is adamant that Courtois' desire to join Real isn't centred on money.

Willian's pronouncement comes as he is set for talks with Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri to explain why he returned to London five days after he was expected to report at Cobham for preseason training. Veteran Robert Green has been signed by the Blues this summer and they have been linked with several other keepers, including Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel.

"Throughout this it has been 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", he said.
