Juventus linked with a move for Chelsea star

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is being watched by Italian champions Juventus according to reports in Belgium.

Courtois has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge for a number of years, with Real Madrid heavily linked with the goalkeeper. However the ‘keeper, who spent two season on loan at Real’s great city rivals Atletico, is also attracting attention from some of Europe’s other great clubs.

Reports in the last few months suggest former club Atletico Madrid and PSG have also shown an interest in signing him, but to Het Laaste Nieuws in Belgium, Juventus have now joined the race to sign the 25-year-old.

The Italian Champions are having to come to terms with the loss of Gianluigi Buffon, who will be retiring at the end of this current campaign.

Courtois has recently confirmed he is yet to sign a new deal, with reports suggesting that that Belgian number 1 is demanding £210,000-a-week deal to stay at Stamford Bridge.

Juventus already splashed the cash on signing former Arsenal stopper Wojciech Szczesny last summer, but the Poland international has failed to impress when given the opportunity between the sticks for the Old Lady.
