Chelsea keeper Courtois coy on his future as Madrid clubs circle

Courtois'wants £205k-a-week deal

Thibaut Courtois has reported no "new developments" in contract talks with Chelsea as Real Madrid continue to monitor the goalkeeper's situation.

"I prefer to focus on the games, and there will be time enough towards the end of the season to have talks".

Should they change their minds at the end of the season, Courtois or the Spain worldwide would be the prime candidates.

The Belgium worldwide will enter the final year of his current contract next summer.

Real Madrid has been targeting United shot-stopper David de Gea for the past two seasons, but they have not been able to materialize a proper deal in order to bring the Spaniard to Santiago Bernabeu.




Despite this, Chelsea fans can take some comfort from the fact that Courtois has said on a number of occasions that he is happy at Stamford Bridge, as well as saying that he is open to signing a new contract when the terms are right.

Courtois has offered no indication that he is considering a move any time soon, but has also been unable to offer any guarantees that his long-term future lies in west London.

However, despite his successes at Chelsea, rumours linking Courtois with a return to Spain have never fully died down, with Atletico's fierce rivals Real Madrid having always been reported to hold an interest in the Belgian.

The 25-year-old's agent attempted to negotiate a new contract for his client after he played a vital role in their second title win in the last three campaigns.

Chelsea signed Courtois from Genk in 2011 before allowing him to spend three seasons with Atletico as Petr Cech blocked his path at Stamford Bridge.
