Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is reportedly holding out for a future move to Real Madrid. The Belgium international has less than two years left on his Blues contract.

The 25-year-old has yet to commit his future to the Blues, but talks are underway with his representatives amid the constant link from Real Madrid.

However, according to Marca, Courtois is still eyeing a return to the Spanish capital where he spent three seasons on loan (2011-13) with Atletico Madrid.

Zinedine Zidane's side are looking into a long-term replacement for Keylor Navas, and it is suggested that Courtois is the number one target on their shortlist.

David de Gea has previously been associated with the European champions, but the Spaniard is reportedly close to signing a long-term deal with Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Atletico's Jan Oblak is another name mentioned over the past year, but the Slovakian is unlikely to consider a move to a cross-city rival.

Courtois has managed 118 appearances for Chelsea in his professional career, winning the Premier League title on two occasions.
