Chelsea see Everton's Jordan Pickford as Thibaut Courtois replacement

Despite having less than a year on his current deal, Courtois has refused to signing a new contract at Chelsea amid significant interest from Real Madrid.

On to the next Chelsea star linked to Real, goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will reportedly be moving to the Spanish capital, provided Stamford Bridge get a proper replacement.

When does the transfer window close in the Premier League and the top European leagues?

One of the brightest stars in England's World Cup run, his market value is soaring right now, but it's doubtful the Toffees would be willing to part ways with their club player of the year, especially since he just moved up from Sunderland only one year ago.

Mowgli has always been considered a risky bet given the worldwide success of Disney's lighter The Jungle Book ($966 million). He told Deadline , "This allows us to go deeper, with darker themes, to be scary and frightening in moments".

Kasper Schmeichel and Jack Butland have also been suggested as possible alternatives to take over between the posts at Stamford Bridge, but Sky reports that Pickford is the preferred choice in West London. I have never said that I have wanted to be anywhere else. I am very happy at this club. I want to give my best, my contribution and continue to improve.

New Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is seeking talks with the goalkeeper, who wants a return to Madrid, where he spent two years on loan with Atletico Madrid earlier in his career.

According to The Sun, Sarri is desperate to work with Hazard next season and will ask him to be the club's new captain in an effort to keep him.

However, it seems as thought the World Cup victor will not be allowed to leave Tottenham, after Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has already fended off interest in Mauricio Pochettino and Harry Kane from Florentino Perez.
