Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has stated he has no reason to leave the club for Madrid, as he is happy at the Bridge.
The Belgium international signed for the Blues in 2011 from Genk and joined Atletico on loan for three years. He won the league title, copa del rey and europa league title in his time at the club.
Despite previously suggesting he could return to Spain before the end of his career and still feels “love” from Atletico, he maintains that his immediate future remains in the Premier League.
“I’m happy at Chelsea,” he said in an interview with The Partidazo COPE. “There is no reason not to be happy at Chelsea.
“I never talked about a possible [Atletico] return. They are rumours coming out of nothing.
“I never had anything with Real Madrid [either]. I have not seen anything published, but never had any contact with Real Madrid.
“No one knows what may happen in the future, but now I’m fine.”
