Chelsea have agreed to sell Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid for £31 million, according to reports in France.
The Belgium international has just under a year remaining on his contract with Chelsea and has postponed talks over signing a new deal with the club.
When asked about his future during Belgium’s World Cup campaign, Courtois stressed that his children, who both live in Madrid, will be a factor behind his decision whether to remain at Chelsea.
‘The only thing I’ve always said is that after the World Cup I look at everything,’ the goalkeeper said earlier this month.
‘The only thing is that my children are the most important and I’ll make the decision that best suits me for everything.’
Courtois is now closing in on a move to Real Madrid as an agreement over a transfer fee has been reached with Chelsea.
The Champions League holders will pay Chelsea €35m (£31m) and have offered the 26-year-old a four-year contract.
On Sunday, Courtois was in Brussels to celebrate Belgium’s World Cup campaign as Roberto Martinez’s side beat England in their third-place playoff.
Spanish reports claimed on Tuesday that the Belgian has since travelled to Madrid and will holiday in Tenerife.
