Thibaut Courtois delivers update on Chelsea transfer speculation

Thibaut Courtois insists he is not paying attention to the reports linking him with a transfer away from Chelsea

Thibaut Courtois has insisted he is happy at Chelsea and is paying no attention to the transfer speculation linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

The Belgian goalkeeper has earned a reputation as one of the Premier League top shot-stoppers since his move to Stamford Bridge.

Courtois spent three seasons on loan to Atletico Madrid before he was finally recalled to Stamford Bridge by then manager Jose Mourinho.

The goalkeeper has been touted as a potential transfer target for Real Madrid in the past few months.

However, the shot-stopper has insisted that he is paying no attention to the speculation linking him with a possible move back to Spain.

Speaking in an interview with Cadena Cope, Courtois said: “I never had anything with Real Madrid. I did not see anything published, but I never had any contact with Real Madrid.

“I am happy at Chelsea. Everything is going very well – it is a great club. There is no reason not to be happy at Chelsea.

“You never know what will happen in the future, but at the moment I am very well, in a very good atmosphere.”

Courtois helped Chelsea keep a clean sheet as the Blues thrashed Everton 5-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League last weekend.
