Chelsea are mulling over a £100million offer from Real Madrid

Rob Green

The goalkeeper has just one year left on his contract with Chelsea and will seal his move to the most recent Champions League winners before the English transfer window closes.

The Belgian worldwide who had a successful spell at Atletico Madrid between 2011 and 2014 has always been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu to be close to his children. But, Chelsea have remained determined in their bid to keep retain the player, with Maurizio Sarri insisting that he will hold talks with his unsettled to players to keep them at Stamford Bridge.

The Spanish giants have been linked with a move for Chelsea's Hazard following Cristiano Ronaldo's defection to Juventus, but have been put off by the Blues' hefty valuation of the Belgium star.

Willian's role at Real Madrid would be one of support from the bench, offering pace and directness in the latter stages of games.

Chelsea's attempt of thwarting Real Madrid by reportedly slapping a potential world record price tag on Hazard seems to have worked as well, with Los Blancos unwilling to shell out the sum either.

Chelsea are happy to sanction Courtois' move as long as they can secure a replacement of their own, with Jack Butland looking increasingly likely to fill his gloves at Stamford Bridge.

Between the sticks, Keylor Navas has been a more than satisfactory goalkeeper for Real Madrid, but they have been keen to upgrade on the Costa Rican for a few years.
