Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois stresses he will not join Real Madrid this summer

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has stressed that he will remain at the club beyond this season, despite being heavily linked with a return to Spain.

The 24-year-old has been a reported target for La Liga side Real Madrid, who are keen to replace Keylor Navas.

Courtois has been in impressive form under Italian gaffer Antonio Conte this season, and both he and Manchester United shot-stopper David De Gea have been tipped for returns back to the Spanish capital in the summer transfer window.

However, the Belgium international has stressed that he is very happy at Stamford Bridge and is not planning to leave anytime soon.

When asked if he was eyeing a return to Spain, Courtois said: “No.

“I am enjoying the success here and I am focused.”

Chelsea teammate Eden Hazard has also been linked with moves to the Bernabeu and Nou Camp this summer and striker Diego Costa claimed the opportunities would be hard for both Belgians to decline.
