- Chelsea are planning a Morata-Donnarumma swap deal, that could trigger Thibaut Courtois’ transfer to Real Madrid
According to Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport, a swap deal could happen between Chelsea and AC Milan, with Alvaro Morata joining the Italian club and Gianluigi Donnarumma going the other way.
Diario AS adds that this deal – if it were to happen – could finally trigger Thibaut Courtois’ transfer to Real Madrid, as the Blues would finally have a replacement for their shot-stopper. According to the previous report by AS the lack of replacement is the only obstacle that puts Courtois move to Real Madrid on hold.
The Belgian goalkeeper is expected to join Real Madrid on a five-year contract. Several rumours state Thibaut is looking for a place of residence in Madrid.
