Thibaut Courtois Fuels Real Madrid Transfer Speculation

Thibaut Courtois Fuels Real Madrid Transfer Speculation

Thibaut Courtois has been on Real Madrid's radar for a while now and has a contract linking him with Chelsea till 2019 but will relish a move to Madrid, which will also reunite him with his family.

According to the 29 year old "My heart Is in Madrid", a statement he made in an interview with Belgian publication Sport/Foot Magazine. 

"My personal situation is related to the city of Madrid," he said. "My two children live there with their mum. I have my daughter every day on FaceTime . She often tells me that she misses me. My son is still too small to communicate like that.

"Whenever I have the opportunity, I try to return to Spain. As a situation, it is not always easy. Yes, my heart is in Madrid. It is logical and understandable.

"If they want me, they have to contact Chelsea. We'll see. But they have not done that. What is certain is that one day I will return to Madrid. I love Spain, I love the city, I spent three wonderful years there with Atletico Madrid. It is there that I became an adult.

"Atletico was a real group of friends. We went out together and my team-mates taught me a language I did not know at all when I arrived. When I left, I cried. My first days in London were not easy. England, when I arrived, was colder, more business. Now, I feel very good here.

"I understand that the rumours are coming back today, as we are talking about a new goalkeeper there at Real. But I do not pay much attention to that, I stay focused on Chelsea.

"If Real are really interested, my personal situation could influence things. The family aspect is priceless. But I repeat to you that, for the moment, I'm busy talking to Chelsea to extend."

Concerning Contracts

"We agreed to meet again in February because the club had more urgent issues to deal with in January.

"There is no rush, I am under contract until 2019. Normally, there is no problem, I will extend. I am happy here and I see a club that still wants to win a lot of titles. The signs are positive.

"Their desire to also extend Eden Hazard's deal reassures me."

"When you talk about Barca, for everyone, it's Lionel Messi. When you talk about Real, it's Cristiano Ronaldo. And when you talk about Chelsea, for 90 per cent of people, it's Eden Hazard. Look at the number of times he makes the difference."
