Thibaut Courtois has refused to return to the Chelsea camp ahead of the new season reports claim, as the Belgium international is bent on forcing a move to Real Madrid.
Courtois’ agent Christophe Henrotay revealed that Courtois wants to leave and has asked Chelsea to accept Madrid’s offer.
“I have been reading everywhere that Chelsea are saying it is up to Thibaut, but he has made it clear to the club that the best option for him is to move to Madrid,” Christophe Henrotay told the Sun.
“For him this is a big decision because he wants to be near his family, and there is an offer in place for Chelsea to accept.”
Speaking after the game against Lyon, Maurizio Sarri has now told Courtois to say his mind
Sarri said: “I’m not interested in the agent. I want to hear Courtois.
“If tomorrow Courtois will tell me the same, I have to speak with my club of course because I only want players with a very high level of motivation.
“But I don’t have anything to answer to the agent.”
