The Chelsea goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, who has been a Blues player since 2011 was reported to have missed his training with Premier League Club Chelsea on Monday amid the Real Madrid transfer controversy.
In addition, the date of when the 26-year-old Belgium international will return is still unclear.
Before Courtois signed under Chelsea, “he was part of the Belgian club Genk and was loaned to Atletico Madrid.”
Moreover, Eden Hazard, another Chelsea player (winger) linked to a move with Real Madrid was found to have attended the training with Blues on Monday.
Courtois earned the title “best goalkeeper” at this World Cup in Russia at Belgium vs England kick-off when they beat the latter in the third place play-off.
His standing shows 154 play times for Chelsea, 58 clean sheets and a conceding 152 goals.
A statement made on Friday by new Blues manager Maurizio Sarri claimed uncertainty of whether Courtois will stay.
He said: “At the moment Courtois is the goalkeeper of Chelsea. I don’t know in the future. It depends on the club, it depends especially on him, but I hope Courtois will be our goalkeeper.”
