Real Madrid president Florentino fields transfer encouragement from Courtois reps

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has received encouragement in his interest in Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Florentino remains unconvinced by Keylor Navas and is eager to replace the Costa Rica international with a high profile keeper.

Courtois has admitted in the past he is in regular contact with Real and Diario Gol says he has encouraged their interest in recent weeks.

It's suggested Courtois is frustrated by Chelsea's ambitions and fears they're falling behind their European rivals in terms of being competitive in the Champions League.

Florentino has been made aware of Courtois' thoughts and has told fellow directors a figure of €60m would be worth paying for the Belgium international.
