Real Madrid will not look to sign Brazilian forward Willian but remain keen on a deal to sign Chelsea FC number one Thibaut Courtois, according to a report.

Spanish media outlet Marca, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Champions League holders will not target Willian, who has also been linked with FC Barcelona and Real Madrid this summer.

The same article states that Real Madrid do want to wrap up a deal to sign Belgium international Courtois to replace Costa Rican shot stopper Keylor Navas.

According to the same story, the 27-year-old wants to return to the Spanish capital after the Blues finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term.

The Chelsea FC number one is thought to be closing in on a move to Champions League holders Real Madrid this summer.

Courtois has 12 months left to run on his current deal and the Blues will be keen to avoid losing the Belgium star for nothing next summer.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a spot in the Champions League.

The Blues have only signed Italy international Jorginho in a £57m deal from Serie A runners up Napoli this summer.
