Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has suggested that he won’t keep Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge against his wish. The Belgium international has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid following his strong showing at the World Cup but so far, the Blues have not made a decision over his probable sale.
Speaking to reporters, Sarri said that he would like to hold a meeting with Courtois, who is scheduled to return for first-team training on Monday. The Italian that he wants to work with players, who only have ‘very high levels of motivation’ thereby suggesting that Courtois could be shown the exit door, he said: “I want to hear Courtois. If Courtois tomorrow says to me the same [as the agent], then I have to speak with my player, of course. Because I only want players with very high levels of motivation.”
