Chelsea Star Adds Fuel To Real Rumours

One of Chelsea's star players added fuel to the fire when asked to comment on recent reports linking him with Real Madrid.

Nine Managers Who Could Replace Conte At Chelsea

Belgium international Thibaut Courtois has been tipped to join Los Blancos in the near future as the Spanish club is reportedly looking for a new No. 1.

The goalkeeper, who left his wife and kids in the Spanish capital, has now admitted that while he has not had talks with Zinedine Zidane's side, he would be open to returning to the city of Madrid.  

"My personal situation is related to the city of Madrid," Courtois told Sport/Foot Magazine.

"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 (Real) 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. It is there that I became an adult.

"Atletico was a real group of friends. We went out together and my teammates 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."

Conte Challenges Chelsea To Sack Him After Shock Loss?

The 25-year-old has made 33 appearances for the Blues so far this season, keeping 15 clean sheets along the way.
