CHELSEA have reportedly made contact with Roma goalkeeper Alisson after agreeing to sell Thibaut Courtois this summer.
The Blues’ Belgian stopper has been stalling on signing an extension at Stamford Bridge and could leave for nothing next year when his contract expires.
Now respected Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims the FA Cup winners are ready to cash in on the stopper.
And they have made Liverpool target Alisson their No 1 target to replace him.
Chelsea know that they can still command a hefty fee for Courtois, whose partner and kids still live in Madrid, with Real the star’s preferred destination.
And the report states they are willing to reinvest that sum into landing the £70million-rated Brazilian ‘keeper Alisson.
But they will face stiff competition from Premier League rivals Liverpool.
The Reds are desperate for a new stopper after Loris Karius’ nightmare in the Champions League final.
However, both clubs could suffer disappointment in their pursuit of the South American according to Brazil legend Cafu.
In a video leaked online he said: “Yes, for me yes, definitely, Alisson will go from Roma to Real Madrid.”
