Courtois: No Comment, My Transfer Issue Now Delicate Situation
Chelsea goalkeeper, Thibaut Courtois, says he is relaxed regarding his potential transfer from the club to Real Madrid.
The Belgium international has been consistently linked with a move to the Spanish champions, who appear determined to finally strengthen their goalkeeping position.
Courtois has just one year left on his current Chelsea deal and has thus far rejected the Blues’ offers for an extended stay. A transfer for Courtois thus appears inevitable.
“My transfer? I am not going to say anything about that now, it is a delicate situation,” he told Belgian press.
“I cannot say much, I am not thinking about that, I am calm and becoming anxious would not help. What is important is to be ready for next season.”
Courtois has spent seven years at Chelsea, though he also spent three on loan at Atletico.
The 25-year-old has made over 150 appearances for Chelsea, winning two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup.
He has also won La Liga with Atleti, along with the Europa League, Copa del Rey and the UEFA Super Cup.
He was also a part of Atletico’s 2013-14 team, which reached the Champions League final, only to lose to Real.
