Courtois spent three seasons at rivals Atletico before joining Chelsea in 2014, but reports suggest the Belgian wants to return to live with his partner and their child.
If he were to leave for the Spanish capital, Chelsea would be in the hunt for a keeper- with Conte ready to raid his homeland for the former City fans’ favourite (below).
Hart was loaned out to Torino in the summer and deemed surplus to requirements after City boss Pep Guardiola brought in Claudio Bravo from Barcelona. His side currently sit 9th in Serie A; 18 points behind leaders Juventus, but it is understood Hart has enjoyed life in the Italian top flight, so a move to a Premier League rival may not be the simplest of procedures.
If the England shot stopper was to move to West London, it would prove a blow to many City fans who have witnessed Claudio Bravo struggle to adapt to life in the Premier League, with many calling for Hart to be reinstated from the continent.
