Real Madrid Transfer News: Thibaut Courtois Addresses Contract Rumours

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has responded to rumours linking him with Real Madrid, telling reporters he’ll sign a new contract with the Blues when a deal is offered.

As reported by The Sun‘s Gary Stonehouse, both he and Manchester United‘s David De Gea have been repeatedly linked with Los Blancos, who are in the market for an upgrade on Keylor Navas.

Speaking to Sky Sports (via Stonehouse), Courtois said he’s yet to engage in contract talks with his club but fully expects to stay in west London: “Contract talks haven’t opened, but I am happy at Chelsea. I hope they reward me with a good contract. Then there will be no doubt I will sign it.”

The Belgian previously spent time in the Spanish capital on loan at Atletico Madrid and has repeatedly professed his love for the city. That has led to plenty of speculation, but it seems Courtois has no intention of leaving the Blues.

The 25-year-old played a big role in Chelsea’s successful Premier League campaign, as he proved the perfect anchor for their vaunted defence. Per Goal, he put up some amazing stats:

While he and De Gea enjoyed fine campaigns in 2016-17, Navas regressed tremendously for Real. The Costa Rican flew under the radar for years and impressed after his move to Los Blancos in 2014, but this past season wasn’t pretty.

As you can see in the video below, he committed one blunder after the other:

Real tend to add at least one big name every season, and there is little doubt they’ll target upgrading the goalkeeper position this summer. Finding a team willing to part with their star stopper could be tricky, however.

De Gea will likely be linked with a return to Spain the most, especially following these latest comments from Courtois. AC Milan‘s Gianluigi Donnarumma will also be one to keep an eye on as long as his contract saga carries on. Speaking to Mediaset Premium (h/t Football Italia), Rossoneri director Marco Fassone recently said a transfer is a possibility.

Mississippi Man Shot 8 People, Including Deputy, Then Wanted To Commit “Suicide By Cop”

Willie Cory Godbolt Arrested After Allegedly Shooting 8 People Dead Including A Sheriff’s Deputy

This story is so senseless. This morning Willie Cory Godbolt was taken into custody by authorities from multiple agencies after allegedly killing eight people, including 36-year-old Lincoln County Deputy William Durr.

In a news release, Mississippi Bureau of Investigation spokesman Warren Strain said Godbolt’s killing spree started Saturday night around 11:30 pm when police received a call about a domestic disturbance at 2871 Lee Drive in Bogue Chitto, according to Clarion-Ledger reports.

The bodies of three female victims and the deputy were discovered at that address. A second crime scene where the bodies of two juvenile males were found was located at 1658 Coopertown Road in Brookhaven, and the bodies of a male and female were recovered at a third crime scene, located at 312 East Lincoln Road.

Strain said the names of the other seven victims could not be released until next of kin are notified.

Therese Apel, of the Clarion-Ledger was at the scene when Godbolt was arrested after fleeing the police, took multiple photos and video footage of the suspect who claimed his violent acts were committed because he loved his wife and children and he loves Bogue Chitto.

Godbolt told Appel he went to the first address to talk about his kids, but when neighbors called police, the deputy showed up to calm things down and ended up a victim himself.

“My pain wasn’t designed for him. He was just there,” Godbolt said of the deputy. “We was talking about me trying to take the children home … somebody called the officer … that’s what they do, they intervene. It cost him his life. I’m sorry.”

Asked what’s next for him, Godbolt said, “Death … Suicide by cop was my intention. I ain’t fit to live. Not after what I’ve done.”

SMH. Suicide by cop?
