Former Belgium coach, Graeme Jones believes Thibaut Courtois will leave Chelsea for Real Madrid before the close of the transfer window.

The Belgium international has made it open knowledge his desire to return to Spain and reunite with his young family.

And Jones believes Courtois will be allowed to leave once Chelsea finds a suitable replacement for him.

A man who worked with the highly-rated keeper as part of Roberto Martinez’s backroom team at World Cup 2018 told talkSPORT when asked if he expects a move to be made: “I think definitely in Thibaut’s case.

“He’s got under a year left [on his contract] now, and I can only see him moving if I’m being honest.

“He’s obviously won the Golden Glove at the World Cup, and he had a fantastic tournament.

“I think he’ll move on.”
