Chelsea handed boost as Real Madrid cool interest in Thibaut Courtois

CHELSEA have one less thing to worry about this summer as Real Madrid’s interest in Thibaut Courtois has cooled as the Blues prepare a new deal for their star.

According to London Evening Standard, Madrid’s interest have eased on their pursuit for the keeper – making it easier for Chelsea to tie him down a contract extension.

It is believed the Belgium international wants to DOUBLE his wages and raise his pay packet up to £200,000-a-week.

Chelsea are yet to offer their No1 this salary but they will try to reach an agree with the star when they next hold talks.

It has been reported negotiations over a new deal will resume when Courtois returns for pre-season.

He initially turned down their first offer back in May while Real Madrid were heavily linked for a move.

Despite Madrid’s interest cooling, Courtois’ agent Christophe Henrotay says Real Madrid chiefs still mention his clients name.

He said: “Of course Thibaut is of interest to the big clubs, including the latest Champions League winner. He’s someone who helps you win games and titles.

“I meet regularly with those in charge at Real Madrid and Thibaut’s case has come up.”

Courtois currently has two years remaining on his current deal and Chelsea are determined not let him enter the final year of his contract.

It is believed Real Madrid are turning their attention towards Manchester United star David De Gea or AC Milan’s starlet Gianluigi Donnarumma to replace Keylor Navas.
