- Premier League giants Chelsea are interested in signing newly acquired AC Milan goalkeeper -Pepe Reina
- The English topflight side might lose their goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid this summer
- Maurizio Sarri is planning to use his relationship to lure the Spaniard to the Stamford Bridge this summer
FA Cup champions Chelsea are reportedly planning for a life after Thibaut Courtois as they bid for AC Milan signing Pepe Reina.
The Blues risk losing their number one goalkeeper to Real Madrid who are planning to do massive business in the transfer window.
Reports in Spain claims that Los Blancos have agreed personal terms with the Belgium international who won bronze medal at the recently concluded World Cup in Russia.
However, with Alisson Becker joining Liverpool, the Stamford Bridge side are left with few options and they have identified the former Liverpool goal tender as the choice.
Tribal Football citing Premium Sport revealed that Chelsea new boss Maurizio Sarri is hoping to use his previous relationship with the Spaniard at Napoli three years back.
Reina recently signed a three-year contract with Milan, having joined them on a Bosman deal this month, but could be offered a chance at an instant profit should Chelsea firm up their interest.
For his part, Sarri has made a personal request to Chelsea chiefs to explore the prospect of bringing the former Liverpool keeper back to England.
NAIJ.com earlier reported that Thibaut Courtois is close to sealing Real Madrid deal according to Daily Star quoting Don Balon.
The Chelsea shot-stopper has been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu for a number of years.
The Blues have always been adamant Courtois will not leave Stamford Bridge but with a year left on his current contract it now looks inevitable that a move will happen earlier than expected.
