Chelsea’s Courtois wants Madrid move for family reasons, says agent

Willian finally breaks his silence over his uncertain future

Newly appointed manager Maurizio Sarri has also indicated his desire to keep his best players at the club to fulfill his plans ahead of the new season.

The goalkeeper wants to return to Madrid to be closer to his family and experience a new challenge after four years as Chelsea's No.1.

Some of the supporters of the club criticised the move as they see this as monetary matter and money is the major motivating factor in the deal.

Willian had been on holiday following his global duty with Brazil at the World Cup, but he was due to report back to Chelsea's camp on time with the Blues expecting him to play some part in Wednesday night's friendly against Arsenal.

Willian initially joined Chelsea in 2013 from Anzhi Makhachkala for £35m, could the offer from Real Madrid have turned his head?

Courtois has a year left on his contract with Chelsea and is pushing for an exit from Stamford Bridge this summer, with his eyes set on a move to Real Madrid this summer. Veteran Robert Green has been signed by the Blues this summer and they have been linked with several other keepers, including Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel. I don't know the situation at this moment. But Chelsea should understand the feeling of the player to live with his family and respect his request to the move.

With the transfer window set to close very soon, The Midlands-based club will be hoping that they can keep hold of England worldwide and their number 1 goalkeeper, Jack Butland.

"I want to speak to him before I answer these questions", said Sarri (via the Independent).
