Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is on course for a permanent move to Real Madrid.

The 24 years old, Belgian international has made clear his desire to return to LaLiga and is said to have already notified friends and Chelsea teammates of his impending summer switch to the Los Blancos.

Keylor Navas is still the current first shot stopper at the Santiago Bernabeu but Courtois believe strongly that there is opportunity for him to establish himself as long-term number one in the Spanish capital.

It was reported that Courtois and Real Madrid chiefs have already spoken and are close to closing a deal to take the Chelsea goalkeeper back to Spain.

Courtois has never hidden his preference to return to the city from his Chelsea teammates, but in the dressing room, moves have been made to convince him to remain at Stamford Bridge.
