Italian outlet Gianluca Di Marzio.com has dropped the transfer market bomb tonight: Thibaut Courtois’ exit from Chelsea is certain and Liverpool have turned their sights on signing him.

The Belgium international is determined to leave Stamford Bridge this summer in search of a new challenge.

Chelsea failed to qualify for the Champions League with a fifth-place finish in the Premier League and the club have also failed in efforts to sign Courtois up to a new long-term deal.

The 26-year-old’s current contract runs out next summer ( 2019) and the Belgian keeper has refused every offer the Blues has made him to extend his contract.

Courtois is set to leave this summer, and will have the choice whether to stay in England or join Real Madrid.

The Champions of Europe and Liverpool are the top contenders for his signature, but it remains to be seen whether Chelsea would sell to a direct rival.

Chelsea may be persuaded to part ways with Courtois as he enters the final 12 months of his contract, rather than lose him on a free transfer next summer.

The deal between the Blues and the Belgian goalkeeper will expire at the end of June 2019, but before signing a new contract Courtois is watching what is going on at Real Madrid, Manchester United and Psg.
