The Belgian has been heavily linked with a move to the European Champions this summer, with a £35 million deal thought to be on the table.
Chelsea only have until Thursday to sign a replacement, but Courtois could join Real Madrid up until the end of the month as the Spanish window remains open until then.
The player is understood to be keen on returning to La Liga after spending time there on loan with Atletico Madrid in the past, and is also motivated to head back to Spain, where his children now reside. Henrotay said in quotes carried by Sky Sports.
"It is a big decision for Thibaut because he wants to be nearer to his family". "At the moment Courtois is the goalkeeper of Chelsea", Sarri said, ahead of the club's Community Shield clash against Manchester City on Sunday.
"I don't know in the future".
Meanwhile, new Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has been bullish over his club's prospects of retaining the former Atletico Madrid loanee, as well as other stars such as Eden Hazard and Willian.
"I am thrilled with the goalkeepers that I have and I will not talk about players who are not part of this team".
'But he has turned down a better offer elsewhere because this is more than a financial decision.
With very little time to land a suitable replacement, the Belgian worldwide will be compelled to serve the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea prepared to let Courtois leave for free if they fail to convince him to sign a new deal. "Or they would still have to sign a replacement next summer, but without getting a fee for Thibaut", he explained.
Real's pursuit of the Belgium global remains at an impasse as the LaLiga giants wait for Chelsea, who lost out to Liverpool in the race for Brazil's Alisson Becker, to find a replacement.
