Top-tier journalist provides update on Courtois Madrid links
- Real Madrid consider Thibaut Courtois among the candidates to become their No. 1
- Los Blancos have not contacted Chelsea over a potential deal yet as they consider other variants
Reputable Het Laatste Nieuws reporter Kristof Terreur, which is normally believed to be the most reliable source considering Belgian players, has posted an update on Thibaut Courtois' situation at the moment.
As per Terreur, Real Madrid have approached the Blues' goalkeeper, however, the talks stalled due to the ongoing World Cup. As for negotiations directly with Chelsea, Los Blancos seem interested in the 26-year-old's services, however, have not made a bid yet. They are also still considering a number of different options, apart from the Belgian.

Real know his price, but haven’t reached an agreement with Chelsea as yet (and they like to bet on several horses as well). #worldcup #cfc #bel pic.twitter.com/S6tNzRQHNJ
