Courtois keeps club & Real Madrid guessing but admits to future 'preference'

Marco Asensio has been linked with a move to Liverpool

Marco Asensio has been linked with a move to Liverpool

On the other hand Alisson still remains keen on joining Real Madrid and according to Italian daily Corriere dello Sport, Chelsea have a target in mind if they fail to convince the Brazilian to move London.

Roma have set a €70m-€75m asking price for Alisson and that's far too high for Madrid's liking when they consider Navas to be at least on the same level as the Brazilian.

Alisson is now playing for Brazil in Russian Federation for the World Cup, where he is expected to start in their last 16 clash against Mexico on Monday.

Real Madrid's search for a goalkeeper continues.

Alisson, who joined Roma from Internacional in 2016, has also been linked with Liverpool. It looked like the uncertainty surrounding the position would end at Anfield for good. Alisson is believed to be the Merseyside club's first-choice target, but the Reds now face stiff competition from Chelsea in his pursuit. Many rumours have stated that Chelsea have now made a decision to put him on the market and will be willing to sell him if an offer of over 50 million arrives for the Belgian shot-stopper.

With Real Madrid gradually turning their attention towards Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois, the Blues are eyeing Alisson as a replacement for the Belgian in the goalkeeping churn across Europe.

Courtois now only has one year remaining in his Chelsea contract and there are serious concerns that he will not sign a new deal and leave for free when his contract expires. Till then, Chelsea could possibly reach an agreement with Roma to take a step closer to beating Liverpool to the player's signature.

The report claims, however, that Roma value Alisson at €80m and are likely to reject this latest offer from Chelsea.
