Chelsea number one admits that his personal life could lead him into joining Real Madrid

Thibaut courtois is sure of returning to Madrid at some point in his career because of his family, but he doesn’t know if that would be next summer.

The Belgian is doing little to stop the rumours that he could be joining Real Madrid after this season by admitting that his heart is in Madrid. His family (wife and two kids) leaves in the Spanish capital and he is finding it hard to live far away from them.

Real Madrid have been tracking him as they concede they may be unable to prise David de Gea away from Manchester United, and the Spaniards may swoop after this season.

Their pursuit of the Belgian has been helped by his reluctance to sign a new deal. Chelsea are prepared to make him the highest paid goal keeper in the world, but he has asked for negotiations of a new deal be stopped.

“My personal situation is related to the city of Madrid.

“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” Courtois is quoted saying by Foot Magazine.
