'My Heart Is In Madrid!' Chelsea Goalie Courtois Admits He Wants Real Madrid Move

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has revealed he would be interested in a return to Madrid as he prepares to hold contract talks with his current club this month.
The Blues are growing increasingly optimistic the 25-year-old will sign a new deal at Stamford Bridge, despite interest from Real Madrid.

Chelsea are willing to offer him a new contract worth more than £200,000 a week, which includes bonuses, that will see him overtake Manchester United's David de Gea as the world's highest-paid goalkeeper.

He admitted, in an interview with Belgian magazine Sport, that the prospect of being reunited with them in Spain is very attractive.
"If Real is really interested, my personal situation could affect, yes," he said of a prospective move.

"The family aspect, it is priceless. But I repeat to you that, for the moment, I'm busy talking to Chelsea to extend.

"My personal situation is related to the city of Madrid, it's known. My two children live there with their mum. I have my daughter every day on Facetime. She often tells me that I miss her. My son is still too small to communicate like that.

"Whenever I have the opportunity, I try to make a return trip to Spain. As a situation, it is not always easy. Yes, my heart is in Madrid. It is logical and understandable.

"I do not know. If they want me, they have to contact Chelsea. We'll see. But they never did it. What is certain is that I will one day return to Madrid.

"We agreed to meet (with Chelsea) again in February because the club had more urgent issues to deal with in January. Nothing presses, I am under contract until 2019. Normally, there is no problem, I will prolong.

"I am happy here and I see a direction that still wants to win a lot of titles. The signals are positive. Just their desire to extend also Eden Hazard, that reassures me."
Courtois lived in Madrid when playing for Atletico between 2011 and 2014 and his ex-girlfriend and two children still live there.
