Chelsea Offer To Make Thibaut Courtois The World's Highest Paid Goalkeeper

Real Madrid's continued search for a goalkeeper that Florentino Perez deems worthy of his Galacticos will not end with Thibaut Courtois with Chelsea offering to make him the world's highest paid goalie.

Ever since Real Madrid did away with Iker Casillas they have been trying to replace the Spanish legend. Keylor Navas is no Massimo Taibi between the sticks but his club seem constantly ready to replace him.

First came the failed attempts to sign David de Gea. The Manchester United number one was a working fax machine away from swapping places with Navas, who was at Madrid airport waiting to fly.

Since then Los Blancos have been in a bit of limbo with Thibaut Courtois, Gianluigi Donnarumma and De Gea all constantly linked but the Chelsea man looks like he could be off the table.

According to the Telegraph the Blues have offered the 25 year-old a new deal that will see him earn more than £200k-a-week, once bonuses are included, that will see him earn more than the United number one.

The Belgian has just 18 months left to run on his current deal but it looks like he will soon be tied to Antonio Conte's side till 2023 with the club expecting him to sign the new deal in the new year.

Real are likely to sign Kepa from Athletic Bilbao in January, thus ending their interest in the former Atletico Madrid goalie, whilst Chelsea will stop any thoughts of pursuing Stoke City goalie Jack Butland once their current keeper signs on the dotted line.

The former Atleti keeper turned down Chelsea's first offer back in May but it seems that the new deal, a huge improvement on his current £100,000-a-week, will likely see him sign.

Courtois has previously talked about moving back to Spain, where he initially built his huge reputation, with his young children still living there but he looks set to stay in England for now.
