Spanish giants Real Madrid are reportedly interested in Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and Cesc Fabregas insists he isn’t surprised Courtois is wanted by Real Madrid.
“It wouldn’t surprise me at all because Courtois is the best goalkeeper in the world,” Fabregas told Cadena Ser Radio.
“It’s normal that the best teams in the world want the best goalkeeper in the world.
“Chelsea is a top club and for the future of this team, Thibaut is a very, very important player.”
Fabregas also recognises the need for a club like Chelsea to hold onto its top players like Thibaut Courtois.
“That is more so considering Chelsea’s future aspirations in terms of competing in the Champions League next season and winning the Premier League title,” Fabregas added.
“You need the best players to compete for top trophies and Thibaut is one of them.”
