Thibaut Courtois reveals he was ‘dying’ to join Real Madrid from Chelsea amid Kylian Mbappe snub

Daily Mail Online

Thibaut Courtois has claimed he was ‘dying for years’ to join Real Madrid as the club responds to Kylian Mbappe‘s shocking snub of the Spanish giants. 

Paris Saint-Germain‘s star forward, 23, was expected to join Los Blancos this summer on a free transfer when his contract in the French capital expired.

However, he eventually agreed a gargantuan new three-year deal at the Parc des Princes which will see him become the world’s highest-paid footballer, on around £1million-a-week, with LaLiga set to file a complaint about the deal.

The reaction from Spain has been one of surprise, shock and anger – and Real goalkeeper Courtois, speaking ahead of the club’s Champions League final against Liverpool on Saturday, insisted he knows the value of playing for the historic club. 

He said: ’Each player makes their own choices and decisions, and no one can know why they make them. 

‘I, personally, was dying for years, because I wanted to come to Real Madrid, and now I know how special it is to play at Real Madrid.’
