Incoming coach Antonio Conte has reportedly given the green light to Chelsea’s management to sell goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, according to The Times.
The 23-year-old has enjoyed a disappointing season at Stamford Bridge, as he missed three months of football after suffering a training ground injury in the first half of the season.
Following his return from injury, he has not been at his best and produced some questionable performances. He has also received a couple of red cards in the Premier League this season.
Recently, when asked about his future, he refused to commit his future to the West London club, as La Liga clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona have been linked with a move for Courtois.
However, according to the report Conte will only let the Belgium international leave if a club offers £50 million for his services. Meaning Courtois will have to become the most expensive goalkeeper in football history, as Juventus paid £40 million for Gianluigi Buffon to Parma in 2001.
Courtois joined the Blues permanently in the summer of 2014, after spending three seasons on loan at Atletico.
