Christophe Henrotay has suggested that if Thibaut Courtois' children were based in London, sportsbet the giant Belgian would've been perfectly happy to remain at Chelsea.The player's agent was at pains to point out his client would never have forced through the move other than for family reasons."The agreement (with Real Madrid) was about to be made," Henrotay explained on BBC Radio 5 live when asked about the act of 'rebellion' by the goalkeeper. "An ideal situation would've been not to do that."It's true that some players force (the transfer) and it is also true that Thibaut was stressing because Real Madrid made an offer for him and he had the opportunity to go."If his family were in London everything would've been different, sportsbet he would've stayed there because, in fact, there was no reason to leave a club like Chelsea, where he could continue to win titles."Unfortunately, his children live with their mother in Madrid, so he has personal reasons and we have to respect them. "Chelsea understood the situation and facilitated the agreement."Courtois, 26, had to join the English team's training on Monday, August 6, along with his compatriot Eden Hazard, but he didn't appear at Cobham that day nor the next one.The Belgian international signed a six-year contract with the reigning European champion, while Chelsea, with a payment of 71 million pounds, signed Kepa Arrizabalaga, from Athletic Club. sportsbet
