Chelsea has opened disciplinary proceedings against the Courtois as he is due to meet club chiefs at the Blues’ Cobham training ground.
Courtois’s agent earlier sighted reasons his client may want to move, one of the reasons is to be close to his family.
After doing excellently well at the World Cup and being awarded the Golden Glove. Chelsea handed an extended break for his World Cup exploits, Courtois failed to show up for a meeting with manager Maurizio Sarri yesterday.
A disciplinary meeting has been scheduled for noon on Wednesday and it is thought the shot-stopper will be slapped with the maximum penalty – a fine of two weeks’ wages.
Real have had an initial £35million bid turned down as the Blues are hoping to hold out for a figure closer to £50m.
Courtois’ agent, Christophe Henrotay told reporters:
“I have been reading everywhere that Chelsea is 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,” Henrotay said.
“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.
“Chelsea could get a fair fee for him now and sign a replacement.
“Or they would still have to sign a replacement next summer, but without getting a fee for Thibaut.”
