CHEALSEA Vs REAL MADRID WHO WILL SIGN Thibaut Courtois Next Season?

Don Balon said there are reports in spain over Los Blancos wanting to sign Thibaut Courtois, Cesar Azpilicueta and Eden Hazard from the Blues.

Zinedine Zidane has been strongly linked with Hazard in recent days with the Belgian International reportedly putting contract talks on hold.

And now Don Balon claims Hazard could arrive alongside Courtois and Azpilicueta from Stamford Bridge soon enough.

Madrid wants Courtois by the summer by and when he arrives, will fight with Kepa Arrizabalaga for a starting spot.

Azpilicueta may replace Dani Carvajal who is said to have failed to convince Zidane of his talents.

The Blues are said to fear the financial power of the LaLiga champion and are worried they could lose several of their key players to Madrid at the end of the season.
