Thibaut Courtois has admitted he has his sights set on a return to Spain in the future, according to Sky Sports.
The Chelsea goalkeeper spent three years at Atletico Madrid, winning four trophies, including La Liga and the Europa League.
Courtois’ two children are being raised in Madrid, and he has suggested that he could look to move closer to them.Speaking to Spanish television station LaSexta, he said: “Everybody knows that due to my personal situation, Spain attracts me.
“If it is not now, it will be in some years.” Courtois has just 18 months left on his Chelsea contract, and he recently decided to postpone talks on an extension until the end of the season.
That would leave him with just one year remaining on his deal at Stamford Bridge, and reports have suggested that Real Madrid could move for the 25-year-old.
However, Courtois insisted that he is not paying attention to the transfer speculation surrounding him. He said: “No, I am calm. I am happy at Chelsea.
“I just want to wait because now there are many games and I prefer to have my head focused on that.”
