Chelsea transfer news: Thibaut Coutois knows nothing about rumoured Real Madrid interest

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois insists he knows nothing about potential interest from Real Madrid.

The Belgian is on a season-long loan at Atletico Madrid where the 19-year-old’s performances have allegedly caught the eye of the La Liga leaders.

“These things appear in the press, but I don’t know anything,” Courtois told AS.

“To me the most important thing is Atletico, I am on loan from Chelsea and belong to the English club, but I am with Atletico and am just enjoying myself.”

And Courtois admitted he would like to extend his stay in the Spanish capital, with petr Cech firmly established as Chelsea’s current number one.

“I am very happy that the fans chant my name, and I have said I would be happy to stay at Atletico for another year, but I will have to wait,” he said.

“I am not 100 per cent sure what is going to happen, but I would like it to happen and I think it will.

“Everything has been great for me here, I did not know what to expect as I have not competed in a league like this coming from Belgium.

“I really like Atletico and Spain.”
