Chelsea and Belgium goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois has his mind set on an exit from Stamford Bridge, according to report from Spain.

Spanish outlet, Diario Gol, reported that the 25-year-old and his crew have approached Real Madrid who have long showed interest in the shot-stopper.

They say Courtois has offered himself to Real and he’s desperate to return to Madrid.

The goalkeeper spent three years in the Spanish capital during his loan spell at Atletico Madrid from 2011-2014.

Diario Gol say Real president, Florentino Perez, is desperate to replace Keylor Navas at the Bernabeu.

Courtois has impressed for the Blues in recent seasons and won the Golden Glove last time out as Chelsea cruised to the Premier League title.

Manchester United stopper, David De Gea, is still a target for Real but Courtois is hoping to be the La Liga champions’ No.1.

The Chelsea ace has a son who lives in Madrid and Courtois wants to return to Spain to spend more time with his family.

Diario Gol add that Perez is a big admirer of Courtois and the Real chief would be happy to have the Blues keeper or De Gea at the Bernabeu.

Courtois and Chelsea are back in action this weekend when Antonio Conte’s men face Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.
