Chelsea will reportedly allow Belgium international Thibaut Courtois to leave Stamford Bridge this summer if the club receive a bid of £50m, according to The Times.

The defending Premier League champions, who currently sit tenth in the English top-flight standings and face London rivals Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, are willing to allow their star goalkeeper to leave at the end of the current 2015/16 campaign if a potential suitor meet their asking price.

The 23-year-old, who has 34 international caps for his country and is expected to feature for Belgium at Euro 2016 later this year, has kept just six clean sheets in 28 appearances in all competitions for Guus Hiddink’s side so far this season.

Courtois, who joined the Blues from Genk back in July 2011 in a deal worth a reported €9m, has reportedly become dejected at the Premier League outfit and is keen on departing the London side this summer.

The report suggests that incoming permanent manager Antonio Conte is happy to let the shot stopper leave Stamford Bridge, but only if Chelsea receive £50m for the 6ft 6in ace.
