Chelsea Star To Reject Real Move
Chelsea Star To Reject Real Madrid Move
A Chelsea star looks set to reject interest from Real Madrid, revealing that he is close to signing a new deal with the Blues.
Los Blancos are reportedly keen on signing Thibaut Courtois after giving up on Manchester United shot-stopper David de Gea.
However, the Belgian has now revealed he is close to extending his stay with the Premier League champions.
"I'm happy at Chelsea and a deal is close," Courtois told the London Evening Standard.
"Has it been a distraction? Not for me. I'm just calm and relaxed because I'm tied to Chelsea. Despite the rumours and everything, I am focused on Chelsea and I'm happy here.
"Do Eden (Hazard) and I encourage each other to sign? Yes. He will say 'If you sign, I will sign', and I say the same to him.
"I think we are both happy at Chelsea, we both have a good part to play. We have been champions twice in the four seasons I have been here and can have our peak years together at Chelsea."
