A new intriguing transfer rumor has arose from Spain as our on-loan young keeper Thibaut Courtois is rumored to be on the list of transfer targets for Real Madrid. And the most ironic part of it is the fact that, they will use a scouting dossier that was prepared when Jose Mourinho was in Madrid two years ago.
According to Daily Mirror, the Portuguese coach ordered for a scouting dossier on Thibaut Courtois right when he first made his move on-loan to their cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid. The Belgian has impressed in his two plus seasons at Vicente Calderon and Real Madrid are now reportedly trying to sign an improbable transfer that even the player wouldn’t want to make. Here is the quote from an insider source from Spain…
“As soon as Courtois arrived on loan at Atletico from Chelsea, a file was opened on him under instructions from Mourinho.
“The information built up is exhaustive and Courtois is on Madrid’s list of targets, despite the presence of Iker Casillas and Diego Lopez in Carlo Ancelotti’s squad.”
This news comes surprising as Real Madrid aren’t even satisfying the playing time of two great goal keepers in Diego Lopez and Iker Casillas. And Jose Mourinho will surely not let this move happen and won’t even sale Courtois as promised many times since last summer.
The Special one surely thinks, it’s now time for the Belgian to come to Stamford Bridge and fight for a starting place against Petr Cech.
