Real Madrid in advanced talks with Chelsea over Thibaut Courtois move

Juventus defender Daniele Rugani

"The 6′ 6" goalkeeper enjoyed a successful campaign in Russian Federation, starting in all seven Red Devils matches while keeping three clean sheets as his country secured third place, their best finish yet in the tournament.

New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is set to axe Tiemoue Bakayoko, the Daily Star say.

The 23-year-old struggled for form last season and has previously been the subject of an enquiry from Barcelona.

"In this World Cup, I have ignored all the speculation, all the rumours".

According to Sky Sports' Kaveh Solhekol, though, Cech could make a return to the Blues in the near future, with the former Czech Republic worldwide seen as a potential replacement for Courtois if he does indeed seal a move to Real.

Speaking to Cadena SER, Martinez said: "It could be the best time [for Hazard] to try something different".

Chelsea are also reportedly looking at Leicester and Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel as Real Madrid look to lure their Belgian shotstopper Courtois to the Bernabeu.

As it stands, Chelsea's failure to secure a UEFA Champions League action looks likely to play a big role in Hazard's decision to dump the Stamford Bridge side for the Galaticos. "You know my preferred destination", Hazard disclosed.

Willian continues to be linked with Manchester United, while reports in Kante's native France are linking the midfielder with a potential move to Paris St Germain.

Courtois has just a year left on his current deal and is prepared to run down his contract at Stamford Bridge, with Sky in Italy reporting in May negotiations over an extension had broken down.

Courtois is ready and waiting for the go-ahead to fly from Tenerife to Madrid to undergo a medical and sign his contract.
