Thibaut Courtois remained coy when quizzed about his future at Chelsea FC as he continues to be linked with a transfer to Real Madrid.

The Belgian goalkeeper’s future at Stamford Bridge has been a constant source of speculation this summer, with the 26-year-old having been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Courtois’ Chelsea FC contract is due to expire next summer and the Blues are likely to want to avoid the possibility of losing him on a free transfer next year.

It remains to be seen whether the Blues will be able to bring in a suitable replacement for Courtois before Thursday’s transfer deadline, although the goalkeeper could feasibly complete his move to Real Madrid at any point until the end of August.

Courtois was quizzed about the situation on Sunday during a visit to KRC Genk, but the goalkeeper was not in the mood to give much away.

Courtois told Belgian TV: “I’m not going to comment. It’s all delicate. I’m relaxed at the moment.”

Chelsea FC, meanwhile, are still believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to try and bring some fresh faces in before Maurizio Sarri’s first campaign in charge.
