Liverpool move not an option for Chelsea's Courtois .
Chelsea shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois is not interested in a move to join Liverpool this summer, according to Kristof Terreur. Terreur that the player’s future is yet to be decided, but an Anfield switch is not believed to be an option. Reports had emerged earlier in the week linking Courtois with a surprise move to Liverpool, with the Reds in the market for a new goalkeeper. Two high-profile errors in the Champions League final means Loris Karius is unlikely to be the club’s number one goalkeeper going into the new campaign. Courtois has long been linked with a move to Real Madrid but Terreur claims that the departure of Zinedine Zidane could play a part in the likelihood move. The goalkeeper is out of contract at Stamford Bridge at the end of next season, meaning the Blues could be forced into a sale this summer. Chelsea, like Liverpool, have been linked with the Roma’s Alisson, who they see as a possible replacement for the Belgian international.
