Courtois refuses to attend Chelsea training to further fuel Madrid rumours

Thibaut Courtois failed to attend training at Chelsea on Monday, indicating he is trying to force through a move to Real Madrid.

The Belgian goalkeeper has been rumoured to be on his way to the Bernabeu since the end of the World Cup, and it seems as though the move could be close.

It has been widely known that the player is very keen for a move to the Spanish capital, so that he can be nearer his children who live there with his former partner.

Despite his agent begging for Chelsea to let him leave, the club seem to be remaining resolute in the face of Real Madrid's advances and may want him to stay to see out the last year of his contract.

With the transfer window in England shutting on 9th August, the keeper has taken action to try and force Chelsea's hand in accepting the European champions's bid.

While he was due to report for training for the first time on Monday, after an extended break due to his World Cup exploits, the player failed to show up to Chelsea's Cobham training ground.

The 'Daily Telegraph' reports that Maurizio Sarri wanted to speak with Courtois about his future there, but that conversation not happen due to his absence.

This is a deal that could go down to the wire, with it having to be completed before 5pm (BST) on Thursday.
