Real Madrid keeping tabs on Courtois

Real Madrid are keeping a close eye on the situation of Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. The Belgian international has had an indifferent start to the new campaign.

Spanish source AS links the shot-stopper with a possible return to Madrid after he was once again found talking up a move to Spain.

"When I left Spain I was clear in my mind that one day I would go back there," Courtois said.

The 24-year-old has had a stop-start season for the Blues this term, but this has not costed him a regular berth under Antonio Conte.

Real Madrid were previously interested in Courtois before he joined the West London giants while they also made an attempt to prise away the keeper during his three-year loan spell at Atletico Madrid.

Courtois has racked 77 appearances for Chelsea since earning his debut in the 2013-14 season.
