  • Thibaut Courtois says he has a “certain preference” amid Real Madrid rumours

We revealed past year that Courtois and Chelsea team-mate Eden Hazard were on Real Madrid's wanted list and that is now progressing. Madrid and London are great.

Thibaut Courtois failed to quash the rumours of a summer move from Chelsea to Real Madrid in the aftermath of Belgium's 3-2 win over Japan in last night's enthralling World Cup last-16 clash, as the 26-year-old stopper said: "Returning to Madrid?"

Courtois has two children - Adriana, aged two, and Nicolas, aged one - with his former partner Marta Dominguez, who lives in Madrid, Spain, and it is rumoured that he would like to be closer to them.

"That doesn't mean I'm going to come back, but for me they are very important and I'm going to do something to see them more".

"The only thing I have always said is that after the World Cup I will look at everything. My kids will play an important role in my decision".

Already, both teams were hunting for other possible targets before Schmeichel's excellence at the ongoing global football fiesta, won over both teams.

Meanwhile, for Chelsea, the hierarchy are aware of the fact that their number 1, Courtois, has set his sights on moving away, with Real Madrid being his preferred destination, hence they are wasting no time in signing Alisson.

Chelsea signed Courtois from Genk in 2011, but sent the goalkeeper out on loan to Atletico for three seasons.

Real Madrid had initially launched a bid for AS Roma's Alisson Becker, but his price tag of €80mn is considered too much of an asking for the Champions League holders.
