Real Madrid Want Chelsea’s Goalkeeper

Real Madrid was interested in Courtois since the last season. At that time, Zinedine Zidane predicted Courtois to replace Keylor Navas who performed unstably.
Now, though the coach is Julen Lopetegui, Los Blanco’s interest is still on. Moreover, the keeper performed great during the 2018 World Cup and got the Golden Glove Award.
