The former Atletico Madrid custodian wants a to Real Madrid in a bid to stay close with his family but the European Champion is reluctant to offer him a deal following the form of Keylor Navas and the refusal of former Real Madrid coach to bring in another goalkeeper last summer makes the deal impossible.
With Zidane out of Real Madrid, the club is willing to sign a new goalkeeper with Alisson, Courtois, Oblak and De Gea all linked with the Bernabeu outfit.
Liverpool is also ready to give Real Madrid a fight for the signature of the Brazilian but the valuation of £80m could scare aware the Anfield giants.
Chelsea has an alternative plan in place should Real Madrid abandon the chase of Alisson and secures the services of Courtois, they will go all out for the Brazilian as his replacement.
