Real Madrid is set to test Chelsea with a bid for goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois when the transfer window opens, according to Football-Espana via Mirror.

Los Blancos want a goalkeeper that can challenge Keylor Navas in the starting XI and the Belgian shot-stopper is also keen on moving to Madrid in the past after sighting family reasons.

The former Atletico Madrid is yet to extend his contract with the Stamford Bridge outfit, though he declared recently that he would be at Chelsea for the next season.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez wants to sign David de Gea from Manchester United but he has now turned his attention to Courtois who has a year left in his deal on his current contract.

Chelsea failed to make the Champions League spot and Courtois may consider leaving England and move to Spain for the fact that his partner, son and daughter live in Madrid.
