Courtois rules out Real Madrid switch

Courtois happy at Atleti

Chelsea shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois has dismissed speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid during the summer transfer window.

The Belgian international who has been on loan at Atletico Madrid for three seasons in a row, was earlier linked with a summer move to Los Blancos, with manager Jose Mourinho unwilling to offer the goalkeeping role at the West London club.

 

However, Courtois has now revealed that he has had no contact with Real Madrid over a transfer, and is willing to ply his trade for Atletico Madrid in the future, should the Blues decide to stick with Petr Cech for the number one spot.

 

"The one thing I have always said is that it's Atletico or Chelsea.I'm very happy here to be with Atleti, my desire is to play and if I can't do that at Chelsea and I can continue here, I'll be very happy." He said.

 

"I've never spoken with Mourinho. At the moment Chelsea cannot guarantee me a place in goal because [Petr] Cech is there, he is playing well and is one of the best keepers in the world."
