Chelsea transfer news: Real Madrid SWEAT as Thibaut Courtois talks are suspended

The Blues are resigned to the fact the Belgian will soon depart the club as he bids to push through a move to the La Liga giants.

Courtois wants out of west London in order to be closer to his family in Madrid.

But for the time being, Chelsea are putting the brakes on negotiations with the Champions League holders.

According to Sky Sports, Maurizio Sarri’s side are unwilling to discuss Courtois’ departure until they have signed a replacement of their own.
