Real willing to negotiate Courtois deal

Real Madrid are looking into a summer deal for unsettled Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. The Belgian international has been strongly tipped to leave Stamford Bridge following a fall-out with goalkeeping coach Christophe Lollichon.

The 23-year-old has had a tough time with the Blues this season with a knee injury hampering his progress during the first-half of the campaign.

Since then, he has struggled to affirm his authority in the number one role with his side failing to keep a solid backline.

The Mail suggests that Los Blancos are open to making a formal approach for the player provided the Blues come down on their £65m asking price.

European giants Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain have also been associated with the player's services.
