With recent reports suggesting that Thibaut Courtois is being lined up as Real Madrid’s top transfer target, Chelsea may be left needing a replacement goalkeeper this summer. With all hopes of top four gone and a place in the Europa League spots seeming unlikely, Chelsea will be out of European competitions after more than a decade. Many such factors have affected the players and fans alike.
Top stars might look for new clubs, with a new manager guaranteed to ring changes when he arrives in London at the end of this season. Latest reports is that Los Blancos will look to sign Thibaut Courtois if the De Gea deal fails to go through. The attraction of playing in Spain and of playing for Real is hard for any player in the world and if a right offer comes, Courtois may leave Stamford Bridge in the summer.
Here are three replacements for the Beligian keeper that Chelsea should look to sign:
If Courtois moves to the Spanish capital, then Chelsea should try and strike a swap deal, involving the Costa Rican. Navas has been sensational this season and is regarded amongst the top goalkeepers in Europe right now. With the Belgian arriving in Madrid, Navas will not be happy warming the bench for the rest of the season and a move to the Blues might just be the perfect destination for him. He had huge shoes to fill when he came into the side but has done exceeding well since the departure of club legend Iker Cassilas and he can certainly replicate the same in the Premier League.
