Real Madrid president Perez wants to up his bid for Chelsea goalkeeper Courtois

- Los Blancos boss Florentino Perez is planning to up his offer for Chelsea keeper Courtois

- The Galacticos want a replacement for ageing goalkeeper Keylor Navas

- Courtois has just one more season on his current deal with the Stamford Bridge outfit

Champions League winners Real Madrid are reportedly intensifying efforts to sign want away Chelsea goalkeeper Thibuat Courtois this summer.

The Belgium international has just 12 months on his current contract with the Stamford Bridge side having joined them from Genk in 2011.

He was part of Roberto Martinez's squad that won bronze at the recently concluded Russia 2018 World Cup.

And the Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is willing to increase his offer for the Blues shot stopper before the close of this transfer window.

It is believed that Real want to replace their ageing keeper Keylor Navas - who played a key role in their UCL triumph in the last three seasons.

However, Chelsea might be willing to cash in on Courtois', who will walk out of the club on a free next summer.

The Galacticos president wants a deal done now and will offer €50 million to convince Chelsea to sell immediately.

He feels increasing his offer for the Belgian will persuade the Blues chiefs agree to the deal now and seek a replacement in the final days of the Premier League market next week.

Tribal Football reported that Florentino is concerned there'll be no chance of signing Courtois beyond the English deadline.

Legit.ng previously reported that Thibaut Courtois informed Chelsea that he will not sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge and will leave on a free transfer next summer.

The Blues have been trying to keep their number one goalie this summer, and with this latest development, they will have to sell him in the next nine days or lose him for free when his contract ends next season.

Chelsea want Courtois to sign a new long-term contract but the keeper says his mind is made up and he wants to move to Madrid to be with his children according to the report by UK Sun.
